In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program
Tell the group that in today's story a high school senior from Massachusetts talks about her experiences in Unitarian Universalism. Mention that the story is a little like an "elevator speech" about our religion—a very short explanation of Unitarian Universalism that a person could give in the time it takes to travel between floors on an elevator. You might also call it a "school bus speech." If youth will do Alternate Activity 6, School Bus Talks, suggest they listen for ideas in the story that they might include in their own elevator or school bus speech about being a UU.
Read the story interactively, as guided.
At the end of the story, ask:
Mention, as appropriate, any programs in your congregation where older youth speak to the congregation or younger groups about their own faith.
