Description of Activity

Briefly summarize the session with words like these: "Today we talked about a big question every religion and every person sometime asks, 'Does God exist?' We thought about the use of the word 'God' on United States money. We considered the meaning of some God words. Next, we heard about the God ideas of some young UUs in a UU congregation. Our WCUU report was about the God beliefs you might find in a UU tent at an international faith camp. In WIT Time, we explored our personal ideas about whether God exists."

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). Sound the tingshas to end the session.
