In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Indicate the newsprint sheets you have posted and affirm that each sheet shows a key phrase of the Blake covenant.
Form teams of two or three participants. Give each team a copy of Handout 2, a pair of scissors, and a glue stick or a roll of tape. Invite the teams to cut apart the situations on their handout, read the situations together, and then tape each situation on the sheet of newsprint where it seems to fit best. Tell them they will soon notice that some situations could fit in more than one category, and their team will need to determine where it best belongs.
Give the teams eight to ten minutes to categorize the situations. Then, ask teams to stop working. Invite everyone to look around to see where other teams have placed the same situations. Lead whole-group reflection with questions such as:
If any participants struggle with reading or have vision limitations, instruct teams to have one member read aloud each statement so all can participate in the decision making process.
If the group includes children with limited mobility, instruct teams to make their decisions about each situation while seated together as a group, and then to delegate one team member to glue or tape the situation to the newsprint.
