In "Creating Home," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather participants in a circle. In the center of the circle you may wish to place a hearth made by one of the children in Activity 1: A Home Hearth.
Say in your own words:
Earth-centered traditions had little separation between their home life and their faith life. When darkness came, with no electricity to keep lights burning, people would sit together around a hearth and tell stories for education and entertainment. People from these traditions still gather around fire to tell these stories which are about what they value and believe. Some of these old stories hold truth for us today, as well.
Tell the group that this Native American story gives us a way to think about the warmth that all humans need. Read aloud or tell in your own words the version of "How Coyote Stole Fire" that you have chosen.
Pause after reading or telling the story. Guide a discussion using these questions:
