In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program
Make sure each participant has their journal and something to write with.
Invite participants to respond:
Think about the choices you have made in your life regarding engagement with social justice issues. How has your life situation—your age, your family situation, your gender, your gender expression, your ethnicity, your employment—affected the form your engagement has taken? Have you ever felt compelled to take up a cause, even though to do so might radically alter your day-to-day existence?
Allow ten minutes for writing in journals.
Invite a participant to come forward and extinguish the chalice as you say these words: "As we extinguish this chalice, may we let the light of our tradition kindle our hope for a better world."
Distribute Taking It Home and invite participants to continue to write in their journals between workshops.
