Description of Activity

Distribute Taking It Home. Share these words from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr:

No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.

Invite everyone to form a circle and join hands. Ask participants to share a word or phrase that describes one insight or take-away from this workshop. Then offer a benediction:

May we go forward from this place to uplift humanity and may worth follow that excellence for each of us.

Extinguish the chalice.
