In "Wisdom from the Hebrew Scriptures," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite participants to create a representation of the desert where Hagar twice encounters first God, then an angel of God. Look at Leader Resource 2 and, if possible, other photos of the Judean Desert. Invite participants to consider how to create a desert. Some in the group can start by painting the areas of the plywood where sand will be placed with the diluted glue mixture, and then use the cardstock to help sprinkle sand on the wet glue. Use a cold temperature glue gun and/or craft glue to add stones, rocks, and vegetation to the desert. Decide together where Hagar’s well will be located and build it from stones, placing a tree nearby. While some work on the landscape, invite others to use pipe cleaners to create Hagar, Ishmael, and the angel of God, using bits of fabric to dress them. Add the figures to the completed landscape.
