Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 13: Planning A Poetry Slam

In "Exploring Our Values Through Poetry," a Tapestry of Faith program

One activity in today's workshop involves small group planning. We get better at working in groups as we mature, and some youth will have more experience in this type of planning than others. Unitarian Universalists often joke about the pervasiveness of committees in our faith. We all know the downsides of committee work. Take a few moments to reflect upon the upsides. What happens (in the best of all possible worlds) when individuals come together to create as a group? Garnering group respect for one's own ideas and input can be quite affirming. Think of a time when you felt fellow group members' respect for your ideas and input. What kind of environment led to this affirmation? Respecting each other for ALL that we have to bring to a group effort is not always easy. How can you help create an atmosphere of respect and affirmation as the group plans their final event?
