In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program
Challenge questions guide a deeper inquiry for especially thoughtful individuals and groups. For this session, ask:
Is it okay to tell a lie in order to avoid hurting somebody's feelings?
Extend discussion with these additional questions:
Ask the group why "good" lies are referred to as "white lies?" Are they really "good?" Do you think people would feel as happy to tell "white lies" if they were called "black lies?" What other examples of this cultural bias of things "white" as being good and "black" as being bad can youth add?
