Leaders are encouraged to prepare for the workshop not only by gathering supplies and reviewing the workshop's activities, but also by engaging in communal worship as an intentional spiritual practice. Arrange to experience worship in your congregation or elsewhere—in a place where your spirituality will be nourished. Allow the words, music, arts, and community of a worship service to reach you, ministering to your deepest self in all its joys and sorrows. You may wish to journal about the experience afterwards, describing the ways that worship has nourished your spirituality in this instance and in other instances.
