Alternate Activity 2: I Do Interfaith Work Because... (15 minutes), Workshop 2: We Need Not Think Alike to Love Alike

In "A Chorus of Faiths," a Tapestry of Faith program

Description of Activity

Ask participants to spend five quiet minutes reflecting on their personal ethic for treating their neighbor well, and for interfaith cooperation. Spark reflection with this question:

  • What is the first encounter with someone religiously different from you that you ever had?

Close the reflection period and ask each participant to turn and share their story with their neighbor (if they are comfortable sharing). Then, return to the large group and go around the circle once. Ask each participant to complete the statement, "I do interfaith work because... ." When each participant who wishes to has spoken, thank them for their sharing and close the activity.
