Closing (5 minutes), Workshop 2: Many Families

In "Families," a Tapestry of Faith program

Description of Activity

Gather the group in a circle.

  • Invite participants to comment on what did and did not work.
  • If you choose, ask participants to say one word to express how they are feeling right now.
  • Close with a parting benediction (see below) or round robin sharing of one word of blessing. To do a round robin blessing, invite volunteers to offer one word of goodness or wellness, such as peace, happiness, wisdom, kindness, and so on, to the group.

Parting Benediction

Go out into the world in peace,

Have courage

Hold onto what is good

Return to no person evil for evil

Strengthen the fainthearted

Support the weak

Help the suffering

Honor all beings.

- Benediction based on the Gospels
