Closing (8 minutes), Workshop 1: Telling Our Story: Multiple Truths and Multiple Realities

In "Building the World We Dream About," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Newsprint, markers, and tape
  • Taking It Home
  • A copy of Singing the Living Tradition, the Unitarian Universalist Association hymnbook

Preparation for Activity

  • Copy Taking It Home for all participants.

Description of Activity

Distribute Taking It Home. Invite participants to follow up on this workshop by observing situations where people are affirmed and situations where people are marginalized because of perceptions based on their race and/or ethnicity. Invite a few volunteers to describe situations of affirmation or marginalization they have already experienced or observed in daily life. Decide how your group will share your observations with one another (social media, a blog, an in-person discussion, and email conversation are possibilities). Decide together on a communication medium to which all participants have access. If this is a stand-alone workshop rather than one in a series, particularly encourage group members to communicate with one another afterward about their observations and experiences.

Offer Reading 701 in Singing the Living Tradition as a closing and extinguish the chalice.

Including All Participants

Prepare a large-print version of Taking It Home.
