Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Families: A Jr. High School Youth Program that Explores the Diversity, Commonality, and Meaning of Families

Spiritual Preparation

Part of Families

Our lives are shaped by the interactions we have with one another and the stories we tell about those interactions. Like the bricklayers in the opening quote, we frame our world with the stories we tell about it. There is the story of the taxi driver who always tries to cheer his riders. He believed that he could improve the world one rider at a time. He had faith that if he were kind and smiled, his rider would go on and have a better day, perhaps cheering others as well. What shape will your interactions take for this lesson? What shape of interactions do you wish the group to take? What will be the stories you tell one another of this time together?
