Hard to believe it's been two months since the Create in Me retreat--and I never really posted pictures. Let me go back to what we'd have been doing.
I had a successful experience throwing a pot on the wheel. I still can't tell when the clay is balanced, but I've never gotten this far with it.
I also created a finger labyrinth. Very cool. I do find it calming to trace it:
I led a drop-in workshop on hand piecing and quilting. Lots of people who had never sewed a stitch before dropped by--and they were largely successful!
We had several cool worship experiences. I love the idea of adding elements to the baptismal font, like these rocks that glow and reminded us of our Bible study that combined theology and astronomy:
But nothing quite matches the service in the labyrinth.
It's a sending service, where we remember that no matter how alone we feel, there are others in the circle with us. We are not alone.
