Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Miracles: A Multigenerational Program on Living in Awe and Wonder

Spiritual Preparation

Part of Miracles

Set aside five minutes before the session. Sit comfortably and take three deep breaths to center yourself. Feel the details of your body—where it touches the chair, walls or ground; how your feet feel on the floor; the sensations of your breathing. What is miraculous about your ability to be alive and present in this way? Take a moment to appreciate the miracle that is you. Now, feel that moment change.

Transformation is constant in life. Physical transformations occur continually, all around us and within us. Some are human-made. Some are visible or tangible. Think about how you recognize physical transformation. When you can touch or see a transformation, is it any less a miracle?

Reflect on this quote from Emerson:

Everything in nature contains all the power of nature. Everything is made of one hidden stuff.

As you guide today’s participants to create and consider different kinds of physical transformation, stay in tune with your own sense of what is miraculous.
