Spiritual Preparation, Session 14: Enough Stuff

In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program

Find a place where you can be quiet with your thoughts. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for several minutes, perhaps repeating a word or phrase to separate yourself from the activities of the day. Take a few minutes to ponder what it would mean in your life to live with simple abundance.

Consider this session's opening quote:

People overestimate the pleasure they'll get from having more stuff. This does not apply to new rose bushes, crayons, or yarn stashes. — Dr. Sun Wolf

What would your three exceptions be?

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you have "enough stuff?"
  • Are there any items you genuinely need which you do not have?
  • Do you practice the 5 Rs—Refuse/Reduce/Reuses/Recycle/Rot? How might you practice them more, or begin to practice them?

Allow your own sense of reverence, wonder, and awe to be present as you lead this session.
