In "Moral Tales," a Tapestry of Faith program
Riches that leave another poor I do not want. — Andre Gide
This session teaches children about injustice and inequality in our world, and the importance of working for justice. Participants will hear a story about a kingdom in which many people do not have enough food. A dog that is larger-than-life comes to the palace and refuses to stop barking until the king has redistributed the wealth and everyone in the land has been fed. Through an "unfair snack" activity, the children will experience injustice first-hand, and then have the opportunity to turn that injustice into justice. Participants will be encouraged to be like the dog in the story, acting as allies to anyone who is oppressed, suffering, or being treated unfairly. "Fairness" will be added to the Moral Compass.
