A lengthy project which took time, energy and memory but was worth every moment of energy expended was our mandala books. We make mandalas when it seems appropriate to help us understand the Biblical story. A mandala is a circle, a sacred circle. After we have studied the scripture for the day, and posed some questions for all to think about , we let God speak to us as we work on our mandala.
To make the mandalas, colored pencils, markers, paint, pastels, paper or whatever helps show their vision might be used.
Our mandala book was a compilation of ten mandalas with the picture of the mandala on one side of the page and the scripture with story on the other side. Each student had to write the scripture and story for the 10 mandalas so it could be typed for the book.
