In "Amazing Grace," a Tapestry of Faith program
This activity solicits youth's ideas about which evils the world could do without.
Ask the group to conceive the story of Pandora's Box written backwards. How would it go? Maybe Pandora would open the box and it would suddenly suck in all the troubles and evils of the world. Maybe hope would slip away.
If the group could select just one of the evils that escaped the box in the story they heard or that the group discussed today to be sucked back into the box, which one would it be? What about the daily sins they identified? Which one of those would they eliminate by sticking it into Pandora's Box and closing the lid?
You can enliven this activity by having each youth choose an evil or sin and act it out so others can guess what it is. Once the sin or evil has been guessed, everybody can make a giant sucking sound while the youth acts out being sucked into the box.
