In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
Say, in your own words:
Facilitate a discussion with questions such as:
Invite youth to create images of what they hope for themselves, the people they love, their congregation, and their world. This assignment may be a stretch for youth who do not feel especially hopeful or youth who have adopted a pessimistic or dour persona. Encourage them to express even a small hope they have, perhaps for a sunny day or to do well on a test. Assure them that even small hopes can shine bright!
When youth complete their creations, involve everyone in clean-up. Invite volunteers to talk about their art. Ask youth if they are willing to include their works in a display. Some may wish to take their artwork home instead.
