In "A Chorus of Faiths," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants are exposed to four different faith heroes of the 20th century, and consider how they might emulate these individuals’ ability to lead and to work together across with others of different faiths.
Form four groups, and assign each group to one of the biographies. Tell the participants:
Read the biography together with your small group. Then identify two leadership qualities you admire about the person. Write the qualities on the newsprint next to the biography. When you are done, move to the next biography and do the same thing. Do not write any leadership quality that has already been written.
Remind the groups every few minutes to try and move on; aim to complete this part of the activity in about ten minutes. When all groups have finished, invite everyone to sit down. Lead a discussion with these questions:
Make sure to set the biographies, newsprint and markers where all participants can read and reach them. Clear pathways among the display areas to ensure all participants’ access.
