Goals

Participants will:

  • Broaden and deepen their understandings and definitions of families, including the roles and functions of families
  • Explore the meaning of healthy families in a diversity of forms
  • Value each individual's perspective as an interpreter of our world and as a teller of our stories
  • Engage joyfully in the creation of art
  • Learn more fully that there is no "objective" point of view
  • Engage as leaders of a project that serves the greater congregation and affirms more deeply their place in interdependent, multigenerational, congregational life
  • Collaborate with peers
  • Experience the roles of photographer/artist and storyteller—visual and/or text—within a faith community
