In "A Place of Wholeness," a Tapestry of Faith program
Tell participants that there are many layers of often unspoken covenant that operate in our lives, and these covenantal relationships call us to act. The role of Unitarian Universalists in New Orleans' recovery, rebuilding, and rebirth after Hurricane Katrina illustrates the complexity of covenant.
Ask for four volunteers to participate in the storytelling by reading quotes from New Orleans Unitarian Universalists. Give each person a copy of the story, with their assigned quote highlighted. Then distribute the slips of paper from Leader Resource 1, Unitarian Universalists' Role in New Orleans Recovery.
Tell participants that you will let them know when it is time to read their slip of paper, and that they should read them one at a time but in no particular order.
Tell the story of how Unitarian Universalists are living covenant in the recovery, rebuilding, and rebirth of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
When you finish telling the story, ask the group:
Try to give every participant a role in telling the story, but also give them the option to pass if they do not want to read aloud.
