In "Toolbox of Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather participants to hear a story. You may say:
This is a true story about Unitarian Universalists who sought to atone for a wrong that had been committed against an African American Unitarian minister.
Read the story, or, if you prefer, tell the story dramatically.
After the story, invite participants to share their reflections and initial thoughts. Have they heard about Yom Kippur (the Jewish Day of Atonement) or the Catholic Sacrament of Penance (Confession) or Sacrament of Reconciliation? The Jewish and Catholic faiths each have rituals for atonement, of restoring balance, at-one-ness. Tell the group they may continue the discussion in further depth in Council Circle.
