In "Love Will Guide Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants choose a way their behavior can be guided by love as the Golden Rule. They make a specific promise and state it in brief words on a Pledge Star.
Invite the children to brainstorm ways they can act that reflect love as the Golden Rule. Prompt with questions such as:
Hand out the stars and pencils/markers. Invite each child to cut out the star, if needed, and then write or draw a picture of a promise they want to make—an action they will do which is a way to follow love as the Golden Rule.
If children did Activity 3, distribute glue sticks. Encourage the children to add the Golden Rule Pledge Star to their Take-Home Night Sky Display.
Children may have a wide range of writing abilities. Include all children by writing key words on newsprint for the children to reference, offering the option to draw a promise, or suggesting a child dictate their promise for you to write on the star.
