Introduction, Session 9: The Power to Shine

In "Sing to the Power," a Tapestry of Faith program

It is not light that we need, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake. — Frederick Douglass

The power of fire is the power of shining light and passionate action. Participants learn to activate their fire power to express their feelings and beliefs and make a difference. They hear a true story of two boys who found a creative way to stand up to bullies at their school. They add fire symbols to the Circle of the Elements mural. While previous sessions have stressed listening and cooperation, this session explores the power of direct action.
