To kick off a worship series on spiritual practices, we sent everyone home with a little heart shaped tin, filled with potting soil and wildflower seeds. We lined the window sills in the sanctuary with the tins before worship, and got people wondering as they entered. As a reminder to use spiritual practices to cultivate fertile spiritual ground in their lives, they were invited to “water their hearts” during the series, and post pictures and insights to social media.

I used these tins. They come with a sticker for the bottom, which is a great place to put the scripture verse for the day.
