Learning Objectives, Session 15: Atonement (Level)

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

Participants will:

  • Learn the vocabulary words, "atonement" and "reconciliation"
  • Understand how the tool, a level, symbolizes the restoration of balance that comes with "at-one-ment" or atonement
  • Hear a true story illustrating how some Unitarian Universalists made a mistake and, later, a new generation of Unitarian Universalists tried to restore balance, to atone
  • Play games that illustrate concepts related to atonement, including disarray and unity and the difficulties of assigning blame
  • Express a form of reconciling prayer in the process of handling and baking bread
  • Discuss their feelings on the value of restoring balance, at-one-ment, by making an apology.
