In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite youth to sit in a circle, bringing their artwork from Welcoming and Entering. Answer questions remaining from the last workshop.
Light the chalice with these words:
We light this chalice in celebration of Unitarian Universalism and the sustaining faiths of all people of the world. May the flame represent the fire of our commitment to understand all faithful people and build bridges that connect us as one human family.
Invite youth to check in by saying their names and, if they have artwork, sharing the subject of their artwork, or, if they have none, answering the question, "What makes you so happy you believe others should enjoy it too?"
When all have checked in, invite participants to display their artwork around the room and then return to the circle.
Ask the youth for ideas, events, symbols, or people they associate with Evangelical Christianity. Write contributions on newsprint or have a volunteer do so. Use prompts, if needed. Finish the list by adding the prompt items that youth did not mention.
Post another sheet of newsprint, and invite participants' questions about Evangelical Christianity. Write the questions and tell the youth their questions may be answered in this workshop. Commit to researching remaining questions and bringing answers to the next workshop.
