House arrest

Journal/blog

Throughout your visits and explorations of the house you have been invited to put thoughts, impressions and ideas into your notebook or on your blog. In this cell-space, take time to review the thoughts and ideas and ask yourself some questions:

  • What have I learned?
  • What caught my attention?
  • What has made me feel challenged?
  • What has made me feel uncomfortable?
  • What has made me rejoice?
  • What has given me inspiration?
  • What has challenged my ideas?
  • What has made me want to do more?

In your group, you might want to create a 'cell wall' on which people can write thoughts, express feelings, or leave each other messages.

Or you can send messages to MTAG by emailing Anne Richards or post them on MTAG's Facebook page.

You can also post comments on Churches Together Connect.
