In "Sing to the Power," a Tapestry of Faith program
This activity is designed to help the group process a Faith in Action activity begun in Session 9.
An important but often neglected part of any social justice activity is the opportunity to reflect on the experience.
Use the prompt questions provided below. Write the answers participants give, or invite a volunteer to serve as recorder.
Summarize the feedback (or, invite a parent volunteer to do so). Share the summary with the director of religious education, and use it to help plan future Faith in Action projects. You may wish to share with this information with the Social Action committee or other volunteers in the congregation as well.
To develop leadership skills, invite the children to help write a newsletter article about their experience. Be sure to get appropriate permissions to share the information and any pictures from the project on the congregation's website. You might also create a scrapbook of Faith in Action projects.
To make sure children who process their thoughts more slowly are heard, invite everyone to reflect on a question in silence for a couple of minutes before asking for responses.
