Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Wisdom from the Hebrew Scriptures: A Multigenerational Program

Spiritual Preparation

As you prepare to facilitate this workshop, ask these key questions:

  • When have I experienced hunger, either physical or spiritual?
  • When have I experienced the feeling that what I have is sufficient?
  • When have I tried to accumulate more than I needed? What happened? What did I learn?

Reflect on how you might have answered these questions as an eight-year-old child, a fourteen year old youth, or a young adult making your way in the world. Envision the way you would like to respond to the third question when you are an elder, looking back on your life.

Bring each person in your group into your mind and hold them in appreciative thought and/or prayer.
