Alternate Activity 1: UUs in New Orleans (15 minutes), Workshop 12: The Call for Responsible Leadership

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

Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

  • Watch a 10 minute video produced by the Winchester Unitarian Society on YouTube called "Reflections on New Orleans."

Description of Activity

Youth watch a video that explores the importance of acting when a person believes he/she has a responsibility to do so.

Before beginning the video, encourage youth to think of issues about which they feel passionate. Could they imagine taking on a similar project for their own issue? Watch the video.

Following the video, discussion questions could include:

  • What was something that surprised you or touched you in some way?
  • Does only helping one or two families rebuild a house make a difference? If so, why? If not, how many people need to be helped before you would consider it "making a difference"?
