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

Activity 1: Sharing Miracle Moments

Part of Miracles

Activity time: 5 minutes

Materials for Activity

  • Newsprint, markers, and tape
  • Newsprint with definition(s) of a miracle generated by the group (Session 1)

Preparation for Activity

  • Post the newsprint with the group’s definition(s) of a miracle.
  • Prepare to share, in a phrase or sentence, a “miracle moment” of your own.

Description of Activity

Invite everyone to share a “miracle moment”—a time when they paid attention to something unexpected, awesome, and perhaps unexplained. If needed, share a recent miracle moment of your own. You may wish to remind the group:

  • Everyone’s ideas and experiences of miracles may be different.
  • Participants may “pass.” Sharing a miracle is not required.


  • What do you think of our definition of miracles now? Should we change it? How?
