In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite participants to respond, in their journals or on writing paper, letting them know that they will be invited to share their response (briefly) with the group:
Have you ever been challenged or marginalized because of your religious faith? Or, have you ever felt out of step with your Unitarian Universalist congregation on a social justice issue? How did you handle the situation?
Allow five minutes for writing.
Now invite participants, each in turn, to offer a word, a phrase, or a brief sharing from their journaling that captures their thoughts or feelings as the workshop ends.
Have a volunteer 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 encourage participants to continue to write in their journals between workshops.
