In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program
Children learn a common hymn.
Say to the group:
In some congregations, people light candles as they share joys and concerns. Here is a song about how every person's spirit is like a little light that is inside them. Our light shines when we contribute a part of ourselves. When we sing together, we contribute a part of ourselves — our voice. We will be sharing our inner light with each other when we sing this song.
Teach the song. Some children may already know it. Lead children in singing, with percussion instruments if you have them.
Some children may not like to sing. That is okay. Encourage those resistant to singing to use a percussion instrument or clap their hands. Thank everyone for sharing their spirit.
