In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program
If the group has an ongoing Faith in Action project, continue work on it.
Or, do this short-term Faith in Action activity:
Learning from Our Community Leaders
Ask participants who in the congregation they admire and why. Use a congregational directory to spark memories. Identify some individuals together. Let youth know which adults you have already spoken with about an interview. Assign two or more youths with an adult to interview. If possible, allow youth to choose whom to interview.
As a group, decide upon a list of interview questions. These might include:
Invite participants to add additional questions specific to their interviewee.
Help participants set up a public meeting time with their interviewee. After the interviews have been conducted, gather the large group and compare interviews for similarities and differences.
Optional: You need not limit the interviews to the congregation. You can involve community leaders in this activity. Participants will need more assistance contacting adults outside your congregation and you will need to follow the congregation's safety policies, which include meeting in a public place and having parents or adult advisors present during the interview.
