In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program
Form groups of three. Invite each group to choose a contemporary social justice issue. You might suggest equal marriage, peacemaking, ethical eating, fair housing, or another issue important to your community and congregation. Give each group newsprint and markers and invite them to list a variety of strategies currently used by people who wish to advance justice with regard to the issue, and then to identify those strategies as prophetic, parallel, or institutional. Further, can the groups think of strategies which have not, to their knowledge, been tried, and identify these strategies as belonging to one of the three categories?
Allow the groups ten minutes to work, and then invite each to share their list with the larger group. Ask, "Does listing multiple strategies help you consider how you might best contribute to justicemaking?"
What strategic actions will your group take in support of one of the issues named and explored?
