Tapestry of Faith: Creating Home: A Program on Developing a Sense of Home Grounded in Faith for Grades K-1

Spiritual Preparation

Part of Creating Home

In our lifetimes, we have attended both good worship experiences and bad worship experiences. Close your eyes and take three deep, slow breaths. Focus on a bad worship experience you have had. Now switch your focus to a good worship experience. What made this experience so good?

Remember that worship does not always happen in a church building. Worship can happen in other settings, sometimes at unexpected times. Be creative in your thinking about good worship experiences.

Now open your eyes. Think about ways you can bring the elements of your best worship experiences to the children you are teaching.
