In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
An active game tests participants' knowledge of religions and graphically represents a chronology of world religions on a time line.
Hand out slips of paper so each participant holds the name of a religion. Ask the youth to line themselves up in the order they think the religions came into being. Point out that the time line begins before documented time and ends at today.
Once the line has stabilized, read the dates from Leader Resource 2 of the formation of each religion, and let the youth reorient themselves.
Ask participants what surprises them.
Make sure there is plenty of open space around the time line so it is accessible to all participants. Partner a youth with mobility limitations with a peer or a co-facilitator who can assist them.
