In "A Place of Wholeness," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants experience a spiritual practice and get to know a member of their congregation in a deeper way.
Explain that some members of the congregation are joining the workshop today to share their spiritual practice.
Begin with introductions of the participants. Then ask the presenters to introduce themselves, including how long they have been part of the congregation. Have presenters share briefly why (not how) they participate in their spiritual practice.
Then, divide participants into small groups to meet with a presenter for about 15 minutes to teach about their spiritual practice.
After 15 minutes, bring the groups back together. Acknowledge that 15 minutes is only enough time for a taste of the spiritual practice that can be a lifetime's work. Invite a participant from each small group to briefly describe what they learned. When all of the small groups have shared, ask the presenters these questions:
Close by thanking the presenters and pointing out the materials the presenters have brought for participants to experience each of the spiritual practices more deeply.
Some spiritual practices will not be possible for all participants. Be aware of the different abilities in the group and plan to have at least one spiritual practice accessible to everyone.
