In "Virtue Ethics," a Tapestry of Faith program
Distribute Handout 1 and lead the youth to read the text together. Ask if anyone is familiar with these words and if they know the source (Hebrew scripture). If you have a recording of the song, "Turn, Turn, Turn," play it now.
Discuss the scripture text using the questions below. If participants enjoy making art, invite them to draw a representation—literal, or metaphoric—of one of the lines from the handout. Suggest that the artwork reflect experiences in their lives when they experienced these "times." For example, "a time to plant, a time to pluck what is plant" could depict someone planting a tomato plant and harvesting tomatoes or it could depict a biology student studying an anatomy chart and then operating on a patient.
