In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program
Briefly summarize the session with words like these:
Today's Big Question asks, "Can we ever solve life's mystery?" Our general answer to the question is "no." We cannot expect to find absolute answers to the Big Questions. Today we reviewed some of the Big Questions we have considered so far, along with some UU responses to them. Then we performed a playlet showing that people ask important questions all their lives. In fact, asking questions is part of what it means to be human. For WCUU we made UU contributions for a Mystery Day Parade. In WIT Time we talked about what Big Question we each would ask if we knew that it was the only one we could have answered.
Hand out any Taking It Home activity suggestions you have prepared.
Relight the chalice. Ask the group to speak these closing words with you: "May this light shine on in each of us as we search for the answers to our own biggest questions."
Extinguish the chalice (or ask the Kid for the Day to do it). Sound the bell or chimes.
