Introduction, Session 7: One Person Makes a Difference

In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program

Children cannot eat rhetoric, and they cannot be sheltered by commissions. I don't want to see another commission that studies the needs of kids. We need to help them. — Marion Wright Edelman in Brian Lanker, I Dream A World

Each of us, at any age, can serve as well as inspire others to act in service. This session prepares children to find their own point of entry into service and leadership. They hear the story of Craig Keilburger, who began working to make a difference at age 12. To help child laborers in Pakistan he founded Free the Children, a service organization which now involves thousands of child and youth activists around the world.

The children explore the nature of leadership in a game related to Follow the Leader. They incorporate the "tied together" theme of the program by making canvas rugs with fringed edges in the style of rugs child laborers knot in Pakistan and other countries.
