Description of Activity

Participants play a game replicating real-life situations involving ethical decisions.

At the end of the game, ask if participants carefully considered the consequences of their actions. What would a firm and unforgiving deity say about such behavior? What would a kind and forgiving deity say?

Including All Participants

If some participants have limited mobility, you might wish to have the group remain seated, or at least give individuals a choice between standing and sitting when they speak.
