Introduction, Session 15: Atonement (Level)

In "Toolbox of Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program

The beginning of atonement is the sense of its necessity. — Lord Byron

The level, a carpenter's tool, symbolizes the balance we need to restore when we make a mistake. The session focuses on the meaning of "at-one-ment." Participants will explore the difficulty in acknowledging mistakes and the sense of relief in acknowledging a mistake.

Allow time for participants to engage the issues of personal and community acknowledgments. Emphasize the feeling of being "at one" when there is reconciliation.

In Activity 3, the children make pretzel shapes out of frozen bread dough. Make sure the congregational facility has an oven you can use to bake the pretzels in.
