In "A Chorus of Faiths," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite participants to wear name tags. Gather the group in a circle.
Say, in your own words:
Today we will reflect on the difficulties of interfaith service work. As interfaith leaders, we need to be honest with ourselves and with one another about our own assumptions and limitations, so we can be effective in our leadership.
Ask volunteers to read the essay aloud, one paragraph per person. Then, light the chalice. Invite the participants to sit in silence for a few moments and reflect on the reading.
Engage a conversation about the essay, beginning with these questions:
Be aware that the alignment of participants in the circle will vary from workshop to workshop. If you have observed the same youth having repeated turns to read while others do not, ask now who has not yet read and invite them to start this reading. Of course, participants may pass if they do not wish to read.
