Description of Activity

To close the workshop, ask participants how they are feeling after the challenge of articulating and sharing their faith. Go around the circle so that everyone has a chance to share, with the option of passing. Encourage participants to be brief.

Close with a song, "Now Let Us Sing," Hymn 368 in Singing the Living Tradition. Ask participants how the words to this song reflect on the themes of today's workshop. Invite participants to rise in body or spirit and sing "Now Let Us Sing."

If you plan to do the Faith in Action for Workshop 12: Wholeness, participants will need to choose stories to present. Add additional time to the Closing for this.

Invite a participant to extinguish the chalice and distribute Taking It Home.

Including All Participants

An invitation to "rise in body or spirit" accommodates participants of all physical abilities.
