In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Distribute paper and pencils. Invite the group to play Two Truths and a Lie. Explain:
Each participant writes down two things about themselves that are true, but which others might not know about them, or might find surprising. They also write down one lie—something that is not true about them.
Give them a minute to write. Then, invite each participant, in turn, to read their three statements aloud; encourage the children to mix up the order of true and false statements. Once a participant has read all three statements, invite the others raise hands to vote for the statement they think is a lie. After everyone has voted, the reader tells the group which statement was the lie.
Process with these questions:
Ask volunteers to read their three statements to the group, rather than going around in a circle. If a child wishes to pass, that is fine.
