Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 12: The Call for Responsible Leadership

In "Heeding the Call," a Tapestry of Faith program

As you prepare for the end of the program, you may have a wide range of thoughts and feelings. Can you create a simple ritual to mark this passage for yourself as a religious educator? One idea is to sit by a body of water and gently toss flower petals into the water while naming what you are letting go of. You could also collect flowers to represent what you would like to keep. Put them in a vase to enjoy for a few days or press them in a book or your Justicemakers Guide. Think about how you have embodied responsibility and leadership during this time as a learning community. As you offer youth permission to bring their whole selves to social justice work do you give yourself the same permission? As you integrate what you have learned and shared as a facilitator, remember that the sweetest fruit needs time to ripen.
