In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program
This activity invites the participants and their families to make a shared commitment to care for the earth and to develop leadership roles in the congregation.
With the religious educator, choose a date and time for a family gathering. You may wish to invite the wider congregation, as well. Designate adult volunteers to lead the planning process. Have these volunteers and other adults invited familiarize themselves with the "Guide to Sharing" from the Center for the New American Dream CNAD.
At the event, introduce the World of Wonder program and share the story "Why the Sky is Far Away." Lead a brief discussion of the story. Suggest and solicit ways the actions of individuals can affect the larger community. Point out that one message of the story is that we should consume less—only what we need—and conserve more.
The CNAD's "Guide to Sharing" provides many resources and ideas for different types of "sharing" events such as a Community Swap, a Tool Lending Library and more. Invite families to explore the ideas in the Guide and together choose a project for the World of Wonder families to do. Once the project is chosen, ask for volunteers to form a small planning group to determine next steps to implement the multigenerational project.
