Description of Activity

The Welcome Words set the stage for the workshop and spark conversation before the workshop begins. The Welcome Words for today are a quote and questions.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; andeveryone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. — 1 John 4:7-8

Questions: How do you know love? What have you done for love?

As participants arrive, invite them to decorate a journal or add to their journals in response to the Welcome Words you have posted. Spend time with visitors and first-time participants to orient them to the program.
