Tapestry of Faith: Gather the Spirit: A Multigenerational Program about Stewardship

Spiritual Preparation

In the moment before this session begins, with all your preparations complete, find a quiet spot to sit and meditate on gratitude—for life itself, and especially for the abundance of water resources and opportunities for stewardship in your own life. No matter the droughts and other problems we in the West experience, it is difficult to even imagine the killing thirst and the risk of disease from contaminated water that are common in the poorest regions of the world. True spiritual moments of gratitude can awaken generosity inside us and connect us with others, with need, with what we can do to help. Let your gratitude build inside you the will to move beyond the immediacy of personal want and to give, starting with the participants in Gather the Spirit today.
