Pause: Play, Breathe, Pray is a card deck of 40 ways to stop, slow down, have fun and reconnect with God and each other. Maybe there’s a place for a Pause in your daily routine, like when the kids are done with school. Or maybe you Pause is whenever someone is worried, bored or cranky. Pick up the deck, find a card and Pause: Play, Breathe and Pray together!
Forty cards for at-home faith formation: on one side of the card is a short activity designed to reconnect with God and each other. On the other side is a watercolor or papercut work of art. The many beautiful designs offer endless possibilities for conversation and play. Pause: Play, Breathe, Pray was created by Shana Peachey Boshart, Alison Casella Brookins, Michelle Burkholder, Maren Hange, Sarah Neher, Katie Misz and Rachel Taylor. They are pastors and lay leaders who wanted to create a resource that families could use at home to create a space of peace and wellbeing in the midst of upheaval and uncertainty. Everyone shared in the writing; Maren and Michelle contributed their art. Copyright 2021 Mennonite Church USA Faith Formation.
