July 2017 Purpose By Design Girls' Retreat-Art Worship
Our Purpose By Design teenage girl retreat of 20 girls and18 leaders had a "yellow brick road" Wizard of Oz theme for this year 2017 in Tennessee. The girls designed their future roads with obstacles and gold bricks representing the overcoming of those obstacles. Each girl listened to God as she designed her Road, grouted it representing "Jesus holding all things together," and then applied cork for an interactive art piece. They spoke about their art and then the girls and leaders encouraged them with the things that we saw in their art piece. This was a challenging and ambitious discovery project, but all of the girls were engrossed in the art of mosaic as a medium.
