In "Moral Tales," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite the children to take some courage stickers with them when they leave today to give to people in their family, friends at school, and others they know who have done an act of courage. Encourage them to ask people to tell about a time that they did something that took courage, and especially a time when they used courage to stand up for something that they believed in. Once the person has told the story, the child may give them a courage sticker to put on their chest. The children can also put stickers on themselves if they feel that they have done something that took courage.
To complete this project, the next time you meet have the children share the stories others have told them, as well as their own courage experiences.
You may wish to invite parents or others to join the group to share their own stories about courage in the face of injustice. If you wish to invite parents, extend the invitation in your letter describing this Faith in Action activity or in the Taking It Home section for this session.
