In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite participants to respond, in writing:
Would you defend, or have you defended, the right of free speech for an organization or person that you, personally, abhorred? Recall and describe a circumstance or time in your life when your understanding of the right to "free speech" presented a moral dilemma or a decision that made you feel conflicted.
Allow five minutes for writing.
Invite participants to briefly share any closing thoughts about the workshop or their journal entries.
Ask 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.
