A Day to Play and Pray with Imagination –
Sign-up ends on Wed, Aug 19 – contact Scott Woolridge – [email protected]
Our goal for the day – new/renewed awareness of our spiritual journey and the need for spiritual transformation – in us individually and in the church. There is an opportunity to have a deeper connection with God and one another. My story connects with your story connects with God’s story. In this day we offer a different way of experiencing God together. This changes things – when God is present.
What to anticipate – August 22, 2015, 10 am to 2 pm at Crestview Christian Church in Decatur
10am – Opening – a spiritual connection, spiritual transformation as a part of New Day 2016
Listening to stories – testimonials – I have been changed …
Conversation in small groups – your story, our story, a vision for the church – what do you observe?
“I wonder what would happen if our church ….?” Tell us a creative, story – ponder this
Around 12 noon – Lunch – sample menu – sloppy joes, chips, veggies, cookies, crackers, cheese, fruit, drinks
We’ll have a table set with craft materials for all who want unstructured time of creation – yarn, glue, scissors – labyrinth, mandala, and …
During and after lunch – a prayer walk around the neighborhood – part of it in quiet, think more about “I wonder what would happen if our church ….?”
Back to whole group to debrief and to pray together
Finally, tell us more stories – “Yes, but” + “Yes, and…”
– Begin with a person who has been changed by God’s love … I’ve been changed or what I saw
– Begin with a church that has been changed by God’s love …I know a church
Closing – we’re connected, our stories are connected, let’s share in communion
