In "Heeding the Call," a Tapestry of Faith program
Though force can protect in an emergency, only justice, fairness, consideration, and cooperation can finally lead men (people) to the dawn of eternal peace. — President Dwight Eisenhower
This workshop helps youth explore the complexity of working with others to create justice. "Cooperation" is a term often used lightly to describe how people work together to achieve a desired result, but on closer inspection cooperation is often challenging and requires specific skills. This workshop uses the cooperative village of Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam, also called Oasis of Peace, as a model of cooperation to introduce youth to this complexity. This workshop also explores using the arts to increase communication skills while discovering what it takes to cooperate.
Given the intensity of feeling generated about the situation in the Middle East, it is important for workshop leaders to be willing to listen to a range of views on the topic.
