Alternate Activity 3: Challenge Question (5 minutes), Session 15: What to Believe

In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Optional: Newsprint, markers and tape

Preparation for Activity

  • Optional: Write the challenge question on newsprint, and post.

Description of Activity

Challenge questions guide a deeper inquiry for especially thoughtful individuals and groups. For this session, ask:

What happens inside you and to you when you act against your own beliefs?

If discussion is slow to start, offer an example: you believe everybody should be treated fairly and with dignity. You also believe in the Golden Rule. But when your friends start teasing another friend about that friend's looks, you join in. What happens to you? How do you feel? What if you don't join in the teasing, but you don't do or say anything to stop it, or to help your friend?
