In "Amazing Grace," a Tapestry of Faith program
Youth hear a parable of love and forgiveness.
Read or tell the story "Jesus and the Sheep." Alternately, you might ask for one or more volunteers to read it.
Ask the youth for comments and reactions. Do they like hearing Jesus' parables? Is telling stories a good way to teach? Why do they think Jesus did not tell people more directly how they should act?
Offer these ideas if the group has not already done so in the discussion:
Would participants agree that UUs believe many of the things Jesus taught?
