In "Heeding the Call," a Tapestry of Faith program
Youth explore courage in seemingly small acts.
Ask for three volunteers to choose a scenario and read them aloud in order. After reading each scenario, ask the group if individuals were acting with courage. Different opinions are fine. If the group feels individuals are not acting courageously, ask for suggestions of other ways the individuals in the scenarios could act.
After discussing the scenarios, ask:
Invite youth to share their experiences. Remind them that acts do not have to be big to be courageous. Explore the role that the possibility of negative consequences and/or fear played in their experiences.
