July 30 │6:30 - 8:30 pm
Sometimes when we look at our lives, all we see is broken, scattered, disconnected pieces, and this time in history may have revealed even more broken pieces.
We wonder how God can use all these fragments for good.
We wonder what kind of contribution we can have in the world.
We wonder how our lives will look as we piece it all back together again.
When we pause to take a step back and reflect, we might notice the beautiful picture that God's putting together, piece by piece.
In this hands-on workshop, you'll have the opportunity to create a mosaic coaster that can adorn your desk, a side table, or your nightstand. We'll reflect on how God uses the various pieces of our lives—who we are, our experiences, our interests, our talents, our shortcomings—and pieces them together to make a beautiful creation. We'll especially spend time reflecting on 2020, paying attention to what God has been revealing to us and what God might be inviting us into for the second half of the year. How might God be inviting you to piece your life back together in this new normal?
This event is open to men and women and will be held in Aurora, IL, at The Perch (31 W Downer Pl, Suite 301). Doors open at 6:15. You will take home your finished coaster with you at the end of the workshop.
Due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns, space is limited for this workshop so participants can maintain appropriate physical distancing. All participants will wear a face covering unless they are seated at their table. The Perch will take additional cleaning and safety precautions, as well as provide hand sanitizer. And, of course, if you're feeling ill, please stay home.
