In "Gather the Spirit," a Tapestry of Faith program
The story illustrates that water is a resource necessarily shared by all because it is critical to the very existence of all life. Many humans, too, take more than they really need.
Gather participants. Read or tell the story. Then, process with these questions:
How is needing something different from wanting something? And how do you feel when you want something you cannot have? (Children especially can want something intensely; you could also ask them to imagine how much worse that feeling is when applied to something they need.)
