In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants attend a Baha'i gathering and discuss the experience.
Meet beforehand to check appropriate dress and review courteous behavior guidelines. Suggest that youth take note of the physical space and what graphic images or iconography are present, what style the facility exhibits, and the accessibility of the service. Encourage them to look for signs of multiculturalism, and notice the emotional tone and style of the worship experience.
After the engagement, process the visit. Ask participants for their immediate responses. What was the experience like for them? Did it seem more or less familiar than other services they have attended? Did they feel more or less comfortable at the Baha'i gathering than at other worship experiences? Why?
