Creative In Our Learning
Imagination is a gift from God. Imagine new highly creative ways of exploring our Christian spirituality together. Imagine engaging in creative projects with our neighbors with no other agenda than to learn together. We want to start from this place - imagination - as seekers and sojourners. About once a month we engage in some form of Creative Learning together.
A Few of Our Creative Learning Parties
- Exploring the metaphors for God and our spirituality within nature by spending some time at Cornwall Park. Several tour guides host our time by leading us in hands on engagement of biblical metaphores. Passages that speak of God as water, rock, wind, vine while we and our children touch these objects and engage our senses in learning.
- Hosting a kosher meal with the local Muslim community where we shared stories, commonalities and blessings over one another. We heard about the Muslim community that meets above the Re Store and sought to find shared values our two groups have in order to partner together in the future.
- Here is one we want to do soon: taking a Sunday where we head to Elizabeth Park just to see how much fun we can give to the children of Fountain Collective and afterwards have a short meditation on the joy of God. Maybe joy can be taught better through experience?
