In "Amazing Grace," a Tapestry of Faith program
Youth look through magazines to find out about social justice work UUs have done and are doing.
Distribute copies of UU World magazine and tell the youth to search through them for information about UU social action efforts. Pass out sticky notes or scrap paper so youth can mark their discoveries.
After youth have spent several minutes in their search, ask them to come forward and write social action topics they have found on the newsprint.
In the last few minutes of the activity, ask participants to put the magazines aside. Call attention to the newsprint and read the entries together. Do any common themes unfold? Does the list make the group feel proud to be UUs? Do they think we all had better get busy if we are going to achieve all the goals the denomination talks about? Are there any issues they would add, issues that they know their congregation or others are actively working toward improving?
