In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program
Remind/tell the group that Unitarian Universalists often express our ideas in hymns. Introduce "Life Is the Greatest Gift of All" Hymn 331 from Singing the Living Tradition in a manner comfortable for you. Ask for reactions:
Ask the group:
An answer comes at the end of the first verse, which says to treasure the gift and offer back "deeds of shining worth." Engage the group to name "deeds of shining worth" they can, or do, offer—either individually, as the Riddle and Mystery group or as part of their family or another group to which they belong. Suggest the group's Faith in Action projects may be such deeds. Guide youth to articulate how such deeds express thanks for the gift of life.
