Exercises Worship Design Thinking

Here are some of the exercises in worship design thinking we discussed in our webinar tonight with the folk at NCLI. Seek and Show: 1. In a large group, make an inventory of the songs, prayers, symbols, artifacts, postures, spaces you’ve used for worship. 2. Then go on a scavenger hunt looking for new songs, postures, places, artwork, stories, tools to use in worship. 3. How would you describe the dreams of God? Break your group into teams of three to draw the gospel story like a movie story board. 4. Now take the list of traditional and emerging items and use them to tell the gospel story

Ignatian Design: 1. Using lectio-divina and/or Ignatian prayer, have participants engage the text with imagination. 2. Have them list images that come to mind 3. Then give those images to set designers, painters, and poets to build a series or liturgical season.
