In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather the children together and explain that you are going to learn more about some people in your congregation by interviewing them. Form pairs of children and have each pair interview at least two or three congregants or visitors — anyone except their Faithful Journeys peers. You may wish to write out the questions for the children to use:
You may also ask the children if there are any other questions they would like to use.
After ten or fifteen minutes, regather the children. Give them an opportunity to share about their interviews. Ask them what they learned that was surprising or interesting.
Encourage a child who is particularly shy to interview a familiar person, perhaps even a parent. You can also have an adult leader be that child's partner. Do not push children to engage in conversations that they find uncomfortable.
