In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Indicate the newsprint signs that say "SCIENCE," "RELIGION," and "BOTH." Tell the group you have a series of statements that some or all people consider to be true. Say they will decide which way can better test each statement: science, or religion, or both. Tell them some statements might be matters that both science and religion can test.
Invite a participant to select a slip of paper from Leader Resource 1. Read the statement aloud or invite a volunteer to do it. Lead the group to decide where the statement belongs and encourage a participant to use tape to post the statement on the sheet of newsprint the group selects.
Classify all the statements. Then, invite reflection with questions such as:
Do not put any participants on the spot to read a statement aloud. Separate the task of choosing a statement from the task of reading it to the group. You may wish to ask for one or two volunteers to share what is written on the slips of paper.
