In "Moral Tales," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather the group in a circle. Thank the children for participating and sharing their stories and ideas in this session. Tell them something that you liked about the way they worked together as a community.
With a ball of yarn, repeat the web game, this time saying, "Goodbye, (child's name)" to the person to whom you pass the yarn. Encourage children to throw the yarn to someone new this time. Invite the group to stand up together, holding the web.
Lead the children in singing "As We Leave This Friendly Place," Hymn 414 in Singing the Living Tradition. Sing together while holding the web:
As we leave this friendly place,
Love give light to every face;
May the kindness which we learn
Light our hearts till we return.
Say in your own words:
As Unitarian Universalists we believe that all creatures in the web of life are important and we are all one. See you next time!
Ask the children to help you carefully put down the web. Distribute the Taking It Home handout you have prepared, and dismiss the group.
