Alternate Activity 2: Round-robin Water Story (10 minutes), Workshop 8: Gather to Celebrate

In "Gather the Spirit," a Tapestry of Faith program

Description of Activity

In a round-robin story, one person begins a story by speaking one sentence aloud. The next person adds a sentence, and so it goes around and around the circle until time runs out or the story reaches a logical end.

Invite the group to sit in a circle. Say you will take turns adding to a story that starts with a pledge to save water. Encourage the group to be very imaginative about the wonderful results that could eventually come from making this pledge. Will your group wind up saving the whole universe?

Offer an opening sentence to start the story. Here is a possibility: "I went to my congregation for Gather the Spirit and I learned that as a Unitarian Universalist, I have to do my part in saving water."

Allow participants to pass if they wish, but consider having an adult assist a child who seems to be having trouble getting ideas.
