In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program
Tell participants they will have a chance to solve a conflict peacefully, with no violence. Ask for volunteers to act out the scenarios. End a role play when a conflict has been resolved peacefully. If a conflict gets stuck without resolution, you may ask new volunteers to try it, or open the scenario for a group discussion.
Optional: To emphasize the return to reality, invite role players to spin in a circle one time when they are done and return to their true selves.
At the end of each role play, ask the group:
Affirm all suggestions of peaceful solution seeking. Do not belabor a non-peacemaking solution; simply move on to another contribution.
