In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Form groups of three or four. Tell the group their task is to create a role play based on either the life of Elizabeth Blackwell as she struggles to overcome the obstacles she faced in becoming a doctor or another scenario where a person is faced with obstacles in their attempts to help others. Give the group ten minutes to come up with their role play scenarios. Encourage the groups to find a role for every member. Then, ask the groups to take turns presenting their role plays to the entire group.
After the role plays, invite group reflection with questions such as:
Some participants may feel more self-conscious than others when doing role plays or acting in a presentation before a group. Form teams that mix more reserved individuals with those who like to be the center of attention.
