In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
Youth act as bridge-builders by planning an interfaith presentation or project. Invite the youth to share their religious understandings with others in the congregation. Suggest they can begin building bridges by creating an interfaith experience for their congregation. As appropriate, offer the options of (a) planning a presentation by an interfaith organization and/or (b) seeking an interfaith dialogue or service project to join or start in your community.
Distribute the list you have made of potential presenters and/or partners. See if any youth can add to the list.
Planning a Presentation
Invite participants to take roles in planning an event at your congregation where a representative from one or more groups will discuss their interfaith work. Youth can contact potential guest speakers, publicize the event, set up the space, introduce speakers, facilitate questions and answers, and, of course, thank the speakers.
Planning an Interfaith Project
Have youth and co-facilitators agree who will contact potential partners to explore opportunities for young people to get involved in interfaith work. Plan how you will communicate these opportunities to the youth who are interested; it may be wise to set a date and time for a follow-up meeting.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations.
