In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program
Briefly summarize the day's session with words like these:
Today we thought about death and what happens when we die. We explored what different religions say about death and heard a story about the beliefs of a Unitarian Universalist minister facing death. Our WCUU broadcast featured the ideas of typical UUs living in UUville. In WIT Time, we thought about rituals that memorialize those who have died.
Ask if youth agree with this conclusion:
Death is even more of a riddle and a mystery than life is.
Affirm their responses.
Distribute the Taking It Home handout. Suggest participants use the activities to continue exploring the themes of today's session.
Relight the chalice. Ask the group to say 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 do it). Sound the bell or tingshas to end the session.
