Building faith

What does faith in God mean for life here and now? How can you get a familiar bible verse to ignite people again ? How do you involve everyone in a religious conversation based on a specific theme? LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® has a lot to offer your church small group – or any other course .

New insights

As a small group, use your head and your hands to tackle a particular Bible text again in a new way, or, for instance, to discuss a thematic question that is hard to “handle”. By putting your hands to use with LEGO®, you often gain – as confirmed by scientific research – surprising new insights. In addition, a relaxed and open atmosphere is created in which everyone is heard.

Connecting the Bible and faith with daily life

During his research for his theological studies at the Christian University of Applied Sciences Ede, Kaj ten Voorde discovered that LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® really helps people connect the Bible and faith to their day to day lives.

Look at the story of Renske ... “At first I had placed my friends around me,
and then I thought: why did I place myself in the centre?”
Look at the story of Anita ... “With every friend you have a few links. I have made sure that they
are never touching one another, because you're yourself and unique.”
Look at the story of Gijsbert ... “The first thing that struck me was salvation, which I depicted with a boat
and a doll lying in the water. That Jesus picks that one person specifically.”
Look at the story of Tinne ... “I imagine a crowd of people around Jesus who were all in strong agreement.
They are looking in a direction in which they believe Jesus is also looking.”
Look at the story of Iain ... “The text clearly featured a kind of dichotomy, of two worlds. On the one side
the world of God and light. To represent this I built a cross. And on the other side
darkness, which I represented as day-to-day life.”
Look at the story of Lieselotte ... “In the first place, I tried to portray "love each other deeply”.
In the centre is a church building. I used pink cubes intentionally,
because for me that colour expresses love.”
Look at the story of Rianne ... “I was tempted to make it into something subtle. But it isn't stated very mildly,
"keep away from them," and those who "cause divisions". ”
Look at the story of Marieke ... “What I have built is also a body. You see it does all stick together.
And above it all is the Holy Spirit, who permeates everything.”
Look at the story of Berend ... In my case, what triggered me was the passage: "And day by day, attending
the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received
their food with glad and generous hearts."
