In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
Humility is our friend. Variety and adaptability are the friends of humankind. These are related issues. Be at peace with how little or much you know about the faiths presented in this workshop. Appreciate the different forms in which spiritual nourishment is embodied. Read the following meditation during the week to prepare for this workshop:
I am a little fish in a vast and wondrous pool. As I swim, my eyes are open and I see marvels, surprises around every plant, within every crevice. Plays of light, astounding creatures, moments that stand still in time. The variety and bounty amaze me; my soul expands. I am only a little fish, but my heart surpasses the bounds of my small frame, offering joy and welcome for all the glory that is spread before me.
The day of the workshop, give yourself time so you are not rushed. Talk with your co-facilitator, and create a peaceful environment in the space. When the workshop begins, be ready to explore with good humor and curiosity the varieties of religious experience in this workshop.
