Introduction, Session 7: Decomposition

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

Life is like a compost heap. The rotting debris of everyday trials just keeps piling up... but if we wait long enough and remain steadfast and strong, even the stinkiest pile will bear good and worthwhile things. — posted on the Earth Friendly Gardening blog, author unknown

Children continue exploring circles of life by studying decomposition. The story, "And It Is Good," shows the important role decomposition plays in the cycle of life. The main activity is the creation of an Earthworm Wonderland. The Faith in Action activity and Alternate Activity 1 engage the children in a congregational composting project.
