According to the Alternative Mustard Seed Calendar, this week is Create your Community (Family, dorm, tent, church, workplace, etc…) Altar Week.
Create a personal/ community shrine in a week – A shrine is a piece of furniture with tangibles that serve us to remind us of intangibles-
Gather a piece of furniture (shelf, cabinet, cupboard, little table) and collect books, little items, photos, rocks, drawings, etc… that have a special meaning for you, your family or your community. use this shrine as a place to mark special events. This could help as a repository of collective memory.
Do not explain what you put in the shrine until the end of the week, when all of you gather together and share stories of the specific items.
Share your process, reflections and photos at the MSA Blog.
