Last week we heard the story of Bartimaeus, who was blind. We talked about what it might be like to not have the use of our eyes. We tried some activities blindfolded, such as walking through a maze (with a helper calling out directions), and drawing a self-portrait, blind.
Monica took this literally, and first drew a picture of "herself wearing a blindfold." Then, she tried to draw "herself, wearing a blindfold". What a difference between the two pictures. It sure helps being able to see what you're doing.
The story was a reminder to us about including and welcoming everyone, no matter if they are different to us in any way.
