God in music
|Description : -Engage the participants in meaningful cognitive functioning; musical stimulation and a true sense belonging while also fulfilling their spiritual needs by Emile Unverzagt.|
|Materials : Large print bibles
|Instructions : Add some gospel music to your itunes collection then create a playlist of songs with a particular word in the title i.e. god or lord.
Eliminate songs that are not appropriate.
Then you can play these songs one at a time and discuss the songs roots with regards to the bible.
Honor everyone else's beliefs, mediate a disputes and move one before any topic becomes confrontational
Adaptations or Variations:
try a name that tune type game where you give the group some clue as to the title of the song before you start playing it.
Don't play the entire song unless the majority of the participants are highly involved in the music.
If you turn down the music slowly the group will feel as if the song came to a natural end.
Don't dominate conversation. You should call upon passive participants to give their input
