Description of Activity

Tell the group that in every workshop, you will ask a volunteer to read a quotation while another volunteer (or the entire group) extinguishes the chalice.

Have a volunteer read this quote from the novelist Richard Bach while another extinguishes the chalice:

All we see of someone at any moment is a snapshot of their life, there in riches or poverty, in joy or despair. Snapshots don't show the million decisions that led to that moment.

Distribute Taking It Home.
