In "Principled Commitment," a Tapestry of Faith program
Each workshop needs some form of closure. The closings in Principled Commitment follow a basic pattern that can be adapted to suit your group.
Ask participants whether they have any questions about the ideas or skills discussed in this workshop. As the leader, you may not be able to answer every question, so encourage participants to continue exploring these ideas as individuals and couples.
Distribute the Taking it Home handout you have prepared.
Gather participants around the chalice. Invite each person to offer one thought or insight about his/her experience of the workshop.
As you extinguish the chalice, read these closing words:
May our efforts here fuel the fires of connection in this world. May our individual efforts take us one step closer to creating a world of inherent worth and dignity for every person, beginning right here with our partners. Blessed be; may it be so; amen.
