Introduction, Session 13: Bad Guys, Good Guys

In "Amazing Grace," a Tapestry of Faith program

The great hope of society is individual character.

— William Ellery Channing

This session is the first of four that focuses on ethical development, using the Cherokee story of the two wolves inside us to ask whether people are basically bad or good. The session continues with a series of up-and-down questions that introduce the concept of character and then ask youth to talk about building good character. The Ethics Play activity asks youth to practice making ethical decisions. The Faith in Action segment asks youth to nurture their better "environmental wolf."
