In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Set out the wrapped boxes on a table or in the center of the circle of participants. Invite volunteers to take a box and examine it in order to determine what is inside—without opening it.
After several participants guess what a box holds, ask them explain how they determined what was inside the box:
Open the boxes, or invite participants to do so. Compare the real contents with the guesses. Encourage reflection with questions such as:
If one or more participants cannot lift and shake a box, select one person to be the designated examiner. If any participants are visually impaired, you might have someone announce the findings inside the box or allow the participant to stick a hand inside the box in order to discover what is inside.
