Introduction, Session 16: Look At Me, World

In "Amazing Grace," a Tapestry of Faith program

Respect yourself if you would have others respect you.

— Baltasar Graci

This final session of Amazing Grace: Exploring Right and Wrong introduces the concepts of values and self-respect. It begins with a final round of Ethics Play and then asks what values make people virtuous. The story of Narcissus leads to a discussion of reasonable self-respect. The group talks about the values and respect their families share with other members of their congregation. Some wall-to-wall questions help the group review the four sessions that focused on ethical development. Faith in Action asks the group to create and sign an ethics covenant.

Note that Alternate Activity 3, Celebration suggests serving refreshments and having an amusing activity for the final group act of Amazing Grace. Doing this may require some extra advance planning.
