In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite everyone to respond, in their journals:
What place do you think temporary autonomous zones have in your work for social justice?
Allow five minutes for writing.
Share this quote, from the catalog of Rowe Camp, a workshop and retreat center that attracts many Unitarian Universalists:
... magic is never far away. It's just around the corner, just down the wooded path, in the radiant eyes of the person across from us at lunch, in the Aha! of a sudden insight. This is the wonder of the ordinary miraculous, and it's everywhere. We take it in every time we breathe in and send it back into the universe with each exhalation.
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.
