In "A Chorus of Faiths," a Tapestry of Faith program
Youth become familiar with a contemporary story of interfaith work.
Tell the group:
One thing that can be helpful in doing interfaith work is to know how others have dealt with difficulties we might encounter. Greg Mortenson wrote a New York Times bestseller, Three Cups of Tea, which tells the story of his work to build schools with Muslim communities in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Invite the group to start a short-term, multigenerational book club. Adults and older youth can read Mortenson's original version; older children and younger youth can use the Young Reader's version (Read a sample on Google Books.). Children ages 4-8 can read Listen to the Wind.
Bring everyone together to discuss the book. Although younger readers will have an abbreviated version of the story, they can still join in the discussion.
Prompt discussion with these questions:
