Description of Activity
Participate in the National Day of Listening by recording interviews with people of all ages in your congregation and community. Plan and publicize your event and gather recording equipment, using the suggestions found in the National Day of Listening Do-It-Yourself Guide.
Work in multigenerational groups to plan questions, using or adapting the suggested questions in the guide. On the appointed day, interview your subjects in multigenerational pairs. After you have made your recording, burn a disc and presented it to the interviewee to be kept as a family heirloom.
