In "Virtue Ethics," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants understand how the use of loyalty affects their lives.
Invite youth to take five minutes to journal, using the questions on newsprint as prompts, or to draw or meditate on the questions. Additional prompts you may add, while the group journals:
Invite participants to share journal writing to their level of comfort. Listen to what is said.
When sharing is complete or after ten minutes, distribute participants' clipboards, new beads (one per youth), and decorating materials. Invite youth to decorate a bead while reflecting on their personal experiences with generosity. Remind them that the beads will act as a reminder to use their highest values.
As participants finish, have them add this bead to the anklet they started in Workshop 1. Remind participants that since this workshop is the last one, their anklets are complete. Instead of a temporary bow to keep the ends together, suggest they place the anklet around their ankles to measure, and then use more beads to complete their anklet. Once youth are satisfied with their anklets, offer to help them tie heavy knots to close them.
