In this prayer space one is invited to think how s/he can make good use of his/her energy in the same way that ‘brother wind’ can produce pollution free energy by making good use of its power.
Equipment: Wind turbine and tower template and biros
Once a man named Francis who lived in Assisi wanted to show the people how much they should be thankful for the gift of life and all created things such as the wind. He used to refer to the sun, wind, air, and fire as his brothers and to the moon, stars, earth, water, and death as his sisters. Have you ever thought of the wind as your brother? Like a brother full of energy, the wind is also a healthy sustainable source of energy.
- Take some time to think about how ‘brother wind’ can be used to produce pollution-free energy for us so that we can live a healthier life. How are you making good use of your energy like ‘brother wind’?
- Take a wind turbine template and on each of the rotor blades write examples of how you are going to make good use of your energy example by giving a helping hand at home or walking to nearby places instead of being lazy asking for rides.
- Finally, on the tower, you can write a prayer asking God to help you make good use of your energy.
