Activity 2: Story and Discussion – How Much Does a Snowflake Weigh? (7 minutes), Session 15: Saving The World

In "Amazing Grace," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

  • Read the story.
  • Photocopy Story 1, "How Much Does a Snowflake Weigh?," one for each participant.

Description of Activity

Participants hear and discuss a story about small actions making a big difference.

Read or tell Story 1, "How Much Does a Snowflake Weigh?" Alternately, you might ask for one or more volunteers to read it.

Ask for reactions. Then lead a discussion by posing a few questions:

  • What is the meaning of the story for us? (What we do counts. We can make a difference.)
  • What are some other small things that can have a large impact when great numbers of them get together?
  • Has anybody heard the saying about "the straw that broke the camel's back"? Is that the same idea?

If your youth did the Faith in Action from Session 3 called "Group Strength Applied," remind the group of that now.
