Recently my husband came back from a meeting in Minnesota about Spiritual Formation. He brought home a package of drink coasters. Normally coasters don't merit a blog post but these are especially cool. They ask questions in English and Spanish about faith -- discussion starters. Here are a sample of the questions:
• Does God plan and control life or is life shaped by choices and chance?
• Describe what is is like to talk with another person about God.
I have always loved the Faith Talk Cards produced by Youth and Family Institute (now Vibrant Faith). These coasters reminded me again to share our faith stories and share our experiences of faith. I wonder if I could get our congregation to spend 5 to 10 minutes at a potluck talking about faith.
The coasters are available for purchase from Vibrant Faith.
