In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
Answer any questions remaining from the last workshop.
Invite youth to sit in a circle. 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 participants to check in by saying their names and sharing one or two observations they made during the welcoming activity. If participants did not do the welcoming activity, suggest they share, as objectively as possible, one of their strengths or things they do well.
Tell participants that this workshop explores atheism and agnosticism, which are faith stances or religious philosophies, but not religions in an organizational sense.
Share, in your own words the information in Leader Resource 1, Atheism/Agnosticism Background. Use newsprint to list important terms.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations.
Please consider making a donation today.
