In "Heeding the Call," a Tapestry of Faith program
I do not want the peace that passeth understanding. I want the understanding which bringeth peace. — Helen Keller
The third workshop asks youth to reflect on the importance of understanding and explores different ways to attempt to understand. The story is about a young man coming to understand what life is like for people in a situation very different from his own. By hearing and discussing this first person account, youth increase their understanding. Other activities include listening to understand and experiencing the world the way others do in an attempt to understand one another's life. Participants are encouraged to see understanding as a justice issue and a crucial step toward creating a better world.
