Introduction, Workshop 1: Gather the Spirit
In "Gather the Spirit," a Tapestry of Faith program
There's a river of my people and its flow is swift and strong. — Pete Seeger, Unitarian Universalist folk singer and activist
This workshop introduces stewardship and water as critical at every level of being, from self to universe. It sets the stage for the Gather the Spirit program, presenting water as a great gift and highlighting that human beings are charged with its care. The workshop offers optional, water-based ways to decorate the Gather the Spirit meeting space and introduces two ongoing activities: group work on a shared River Scene mural and a water scavenger hunt to try at home.
Gather the Spirit is intended for use by multigenerational groups, and its activities are designed to include and engage participants of diverse ages and abilities. You will benefit from learning in advance who will be in the group, so you can tailor the Gather the Spirit program to participants' specific interests and needs.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
