In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program
Present your findings about the congregation's justice work. Invite participants to consider how the congregation's work is connected to the larger Unitarian Universalist history of resistance and transformation:
Allow fifteen minutes for this part of the activity.
Then, post blank newsprint and lead a brainstorming activity using these questions:
Allow three minutes for this brainstorm.
Now, post new newsprint for a second brainstorming activity. Ask: What are the needs of our surrounding community? Record contributions.
After three minutes, lead a large group discussion asking participants to consider how their congregation's gifts relate to the needs of the surrounding community. Ask the group what it might do to learn if its assessment of community needs is correct. Which community leaders might they talk to?
Finally, ask the group if they are interested in continuing to meet to discuss possible social or environmental justice projects to do together. Distribute Handout 2, Social Justice Resources and set a time to meet again.
