My Participate! journal

Exploring what it means to be a Christian disciple

Meg Prowting, Penny Fuller, Mike Seaton

Currently out of print £3.99


This journal is intended for you to use at home to help you to reflect on your Participate! experience. The idea is for you to record your own personal thoughts about the group time, using the questions and activities linked with each of the sessions to help you.

You can write (or draw) as much or as little as you like - your journal is private to you so you don't have to show it to anyone if you don't want to.

Inside the back cover you will find a colour wheel for you to use to help you best describe your thoughts and feelings about your experience. You can use your colour wheel to choose a colour that feels right for you at that moment - think about what colour you were immediately drawn to and how the colour makes you feel.

As the weeks progress, you can look back over your journal to see if your thoughts on anything have changed or if there is anything you would want to do differently.

From The Good Bookstall - May 2012

Designed to be used with the Participate! sessions on Discipleship & vocation for 9-14 year olds, this is an excellent little activity book with plenty of scope for real individuality to shine through. Though well guided throughout with lots of interactive and intelligent questions within, it neither condescends or over estimates the level of anyone using it - which given the age range it's designed for is quite important! To be fair it is perhaps more likely to be used with the younger end of the Participate! sessions age range but even the older age range would not be offended by the booklet.

The thing I loved most about it though is the colour wheel included in it and the explanation of how sometimes it can be hard to put into words what we feel, but how we can perhaps use colours to represent these hard to define things instead - an excellent, unusual and creatively intelligent inclusion that works on so many positive levels. Something I'm likely to use in many situations from here on out!
