So here is a simple workshop plan. Sometimes my plans are written out in detail, others are not as I know that there needed to be a lot of space to let God move and see where the session was going to take us. So below is an example of a ‘light’ plan. When I delivered this session, it was one of my busiest for a while, so it was lovely to see how each person developed their individual movement style.
Let me know how you get on!
Pray – always begin with prayer, welcome God into the space you are in.
Read all of Romans 8 – what are your initial thoughts?
Focus on the following areas for discussion –
- Verses 1 – 4
- Verse 14 – children of God
- Verses 37 to the end.
Creative Task – Life through the spirit
What has you week looked like? Where has the spirit been in it?
Take a piece of paper and draw or sketch your journey. Think about peaks and troughs and how you travelled from one space to another.
Individually – identify ways that you can put movements together to demonstrate your journey.
Share with others if you comfortable.
With Others – Link your journeys together. Do this by first all doing your own journey at the same time. Then identify points at which your journey can intersect with someone else’s. Finally, how different does the journey look if you add some one in?
You should 3 variations now. Your own with others, your own that intersects with others and finally your own with someone else in the journey at some point too.
Share with others your finished dance. Use it as a time of blessing, both to give, but also to receive.
