In "Moral Tales," a Tapestry of Faith program
Pose these questions and allow children to explore:
A second adult volunteer or co-leader can offer possible answers to the questions if the children find them difficult. A second adult can also join the discussion to ensure that both theistic and atheistic interpretations of what happened in the story are represented and respected. If children's answers reflect only one perspective, an adult leader can say something like, "Some people believe that and some people believe ... " or "That's what the man believed in the story, but some people might think ... "
This session requires a fair bit of sitting in a circle or at the table. For children who learn better when moving, consider bringing out a basket of "fidget objects." For more information, see Leader Resources.
