In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program
Notable Thoughts is the first Alternate Activity in each session of Riddle and Mystery. Remind participants that this is a time for them to record their own ideas about today's Big Question. Distribute participants' notebooks and pencils or pens. Provide any new participants with notebooks. Say that the notebooks are private; you will keep them between sessions but not read them.
Tell the youth they will have about five minutes. Remind them of today's Big Question: "What are you?" Suggest they write or draw about who and what they are as individuals, as members of their family, as Unitarian Universalists or as humans. Their ideas can be different from what you have talked about so far. If they have nothing to record, they may doodle or relax.
Give them a few minutes to work quietly in their notebooks. When time is up, offer that they may seal their notebooks with masking tape before handing them in. Collect the notebooks.
