In "Harvest the Power," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather the group to hear a participant read the story aloud. After the reading, +invite participants to recall a time in their lives when an action, event, or chance meeting sent their lives in a new, unexpected direction. Allow a minute for silent reflection. Then invite participants to share their stories with one other person, explaining what happened and how their self-perception changed. Each person will have about three minutes to share. Encourage participants to practice deep listening, allowing the other person to tell their story without interruption.
Signal the group when three minutes have passed. When pairs have shared, regather the group. Invite people to think of a word or phrase that captures the essence of their experience. Wait a minute for people to think of their word or phrase. Then ask each person in turn to share it with the group.
