In "Windows and Mirrors," a Tapestry of Faith program
Find a place where you can be quiet with your thoughts. Make yourself comfortable; light a candle to mark the time as different from your other activities. Close your eyes and breathe deeply and perhaps repeat a word or phrase to separate yourself from the activities of the day. After opening your eyes, consider:
Review what you know about socio-economic class identities within your congregation, specifically among the families whose children are in the Windows and Mirrors group. The group may include children who feel, or whose parents feel, invisible like the Soji underclass in this session's story. Consider how you can create a safe climate for all the children to expand their awareness of socio-economic class. Resolve to develop children's understanding that people's worth is absolute, no matter their wealth.
