Welcoming and Entering, Session 15: Atonement (Level)

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

Materials for Activity

  • Tool of the Day — a level, or several levels
  • Two sheets of paper, and pencils for all participants

Preparation for Activity

  • On one sheet of paper, write "atonement" and a definition ("something that makes up for an offense or injury"). On the other sheet, write "reconciliation" and a definition ("restoration to friendship or harmony"). Leave plenty of room under or around the words.
  • Place the level(s), the sheets of paper, and pencils on a worktable.

Description of Activity

This section is intended for the time before the beginning of a session when participants arrive individually over a period of time (that is, "straggle in").

Welcome participants. Tell them the two words on the sheets of paper, "atonement" and "reconciliation," will be part of today's session. Invite them to try to make as many smaller words as they can, on each sheet, from the letters of the longer word, and write the smaller words on the sheets.

You may also invite them to use the level(s) to inspect surfaces in the room. Show them how to use a level, if necessary.
