Alternate Activity 3: Challenge Question (5 minutes), Session Speaking of Fair: Speaking of Fair

In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Optional: Newsprint, markers and tape

Preparation for Activity

  • Optional: Write the challenge question on newsprint, and post.

Description of Activity

Challenge questions guide a deeper inquiry for especially thoughtful individuals and groups. For this session, ask:

Is nature fair?

Extend discussion with these additional questions:

  • Do some creatures or plants in nature seem to get a better deal than others? Which ones? Is that fair?
  • Does evolution seem like a fair process? The theory of evolution says the fittest animals and plants win out. The least fit die. Is that fair?
  • Can you think of a better system? A way nature could be more fait and still be nature?
  • Can a Unitarian Universalist action make nature more fair?
