Opening (10 minutes), Workshop 2: David and Nathan - You are That Man

In "Wisdom from the Hebrew Scriptures," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Chalice, candle and lighter, or LED battery-operated candle
  • Stand or table space for the chalice
  • Decorative covering for chalice stand
  • Newsprint, markers, and tape

Preparation for Activity

  • Prepare a welcoming space, including comfortable seating arranged in a circle around a small table with a chalice at its center.

Description of Activity

Bring participants together and welcome them. Invite a volunteer to light the chalice as you share a favorite children's chalice lighting used in your congregation.

Invite participants to go around the circle and say their names and briefly tell of a time when they were brave. As the stories are shared, point out that bravery can mean confronting a bully, like David did Goliath, but it can also mean taking a stance for what is right and fair, which is what today's story is about.
