In "Moral Tales," a Tapestry of Faith program
Read the story, "A Messiah Is Among You," a few times. Spend a few minutes thinking about the group, imagining each child as a potential messiah. If there is a child whom you consider difficult, try to reframe this perception. Take any behaviors you see as negative and think about how they might be positive. For example: stubborn can also be persistent, loud might mean passionately involved, rebellious might be independent, and silly might mean full of humor.
Over the next few weeks, try to extend this sort of thinking to everyone you meet.
