Symbol cards are a great way to encourage conversation, openness and vulnerability in a small group setting. Using imagery as a conversation starter encourages people to open up and push past the surface-level much quicker and easier.
Symbol cards are a great tool to add to your ministry kete - whether it's small groups, youth ministry or kids church! This symbol cards pack is created with kids in mind but can be used with any age or group!
