If we start with square pieces of paper, we can build (fold), what are called, Star Building Units.
These Star Building Units than can be combined to build something beautiful. For example, a cube.
This is like the church.
The object we build out of the star building units is similar to the church because:
- We start with very basic things – paper/people.
- It is a combination of things to build something; people working together.
- It is Beautiful.
- It is Useful; as a community/team they can accomplish much.
How to Assemble the Cube from 6 Star Building Units
Each unit has 2 tabs (points) and 2 pockets. When you combine them, a tab always goes into a pocket.
How to Fold the Star Building Units
Here is how to fold a Star Building Unit. (You need 6 to make the cube.)
