In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants present a televised WCUU segment involving eight On-Air People — Co-Anchor 1, Co-Anchor 2, Atheist, Theist, Agnostic, Humanist, Mystery Seeker, God as Love-ist, Pagan, NUUs Analyst — and as many Studio Staffers as you care to use.
Assign or choose volunteers for On-Air People and Studio Staffers. You might offer your Kid for the Day a chance to be a Co-Anchor or the NUUs Analyst. Make sure volunteers understand that everyone except the NUUs Analyst will be making up some of their on-air dialogue as they go along.
Distribute appropriate segments of Leader Resource 5 to Atheist, Theist, Agnostic, Humanist, Mystery Seeker, God as Love-ist, and Pagan. Tell them to read them over before the broadcast begins. Say they should not read the segments aloud or try to repeat everything they say, but simply use them for ideas to help them say what they like.
Give all who need to follow the script a moment to look it over. Review it with anyone who needs help with reading.
Let the broadcast begin.
At the end of the broadcast, ask participants how it went. Ask them to summarize how they think UUs respond to Today's Big Question: Does God exist? Do they like the idea of Unitarian Universalism as a large tent where people with different beliefs can gather? If the show has been taped, make arrangements for playing it back at another time or otherwise sharing it with participants and their families. Do they think non-UU viewers would understand Unitarian Universalism better after seeing it?
