Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Faithful Journeys: A Program about Pilgrimages of Faith in Action for Grades 2-3

Spiritual Preparation

Go outside in the nighttime and look up at the sky. If it would be helpful in creating sacred space, and weather permits, light a candle or chalice. Reflect:

  • How do you engage in a search for truth and meaning in your own life? What role does questioning play in your search?
  • How have your questions been met by others? Have you been encouraged to ask questions? When, and when not?
  • What would you most like to learn about the world? What truly piques your curiosity? In what ways do you think your curiosity is like, or unlike, the curiosity of a seven-, eight- or nine-year-old child?
  • Are there times you want the satisfaction of a single, true answer? When are you comfortable with multiple answers or changing answers to your questions?
