Find Out More, Session 4: Flexibility (Duct Tape)
In "Toolbox of Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program
The story, "Answer Mountain," comes from What If Nobody Forgave? and Other Stories, Second Edition, edited by Colleen M. McDonald (Boston: Skinner House, 2002), available from the UUA online bookstore.
The game, Outright Lie, comes from "Deep Fun," a collection of games and activities published by the Unitarian Universalist Association Youth Office.
Is There Such a Thing As Being Too Flexible?
Valuing flexibility and change may bring the accusation that Unitarian Universalist faith is "wishy-washy," that is, without a moral core. A compelling article by Warren R. Ross ("Does tolerance disarm religious liberals?" UU World, Fall, 2006) discusses this challenge.
There are a variety of projects to make with duct tape. See other Duck Tape Club projects, such as a picture frame, a rose, a bookmark, and a bracelet, online.
Two books with more duct tape crafts are:
Got Tape? Roll out the Fun With Duct Tape! by Ellie Schiedermayer (Iola, WI: Krause Publications, 2002). The author, a high school student in Wisconsin, suggests twenty-five duct tape projects including a tie, a picture frame, and a crown and tiara.
Ductigami: The Art of the Tape by Joe Wilson (Toronto: Boston Mills Press, 1999). This book provides a brief history of duct tape and instructions for fourteen projects including an apron, a tool belt, and a wallet.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
