In "Heeding the Call," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants cooperate to create an art project.
Divide participants into two teams. Tell them that each team is responsible for creating a model village. Oasis of Peace used education as the focus of their village. Each team should choose a different focus for their village. Every team member should help decide on the theme and should create at least one piece of the village. Try to make the villages as functioning as possible. After choosing a theme, teams might brainstorm what their village needs most. For Oasis of peace, it was schools and learning centers. Yet, their village also needed markets, houses, and government centers. Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam also has a large municipal pool. Was that something they needed or something they wanted? Tell teams that they have 15 minutes to work on the project and two minutes to present it to the larger group.
While the teams work, give time updates. Be available to answer questions, but let the teams make all the decisions. Reconvene the larger group and hear presentations. Process the activity with the following questions:
Be sure the tables are accessible to anyone with mobility needs.
