Faith In Action: Ideas, Session 15: Atonement (Level)

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

Description of Activity

Look for a project involving individual and/or community reconciliation.

A prayer can provide a context and structure to help people confront situations in their lives that call for atonement. Work with participants to help them — individually, or together — create and use a personal daily prayer including the following three parts: something you are thankful for, something you are sorry for, and something you are glad about. You may suggest the prayer might end with the words, "I am a Unitarian Universalist with a mind that thinks, a heart that loves, and hands that are ready to serve."

Participants may wish to investigate stories in their own communities about prejudice and oppression. Guide them to identify and interview a person involved in righting a wrong, and then write an article for the congregational newsletter.
