In "A Place of Wholeness," a Tapestry of Faith program
This activity increases knowledge and understanding of Unitarian, Universalist, and Unitarian Universalist female ancestors. Decide how many ancestors you will use based on the number of participants. If there are ten participants, you will use five ancestors (five names and five matching bios.) Fifteen ancestors are provided.
Distribute matching names and bios to participants so that each person has one square. Tell the participants to wander around "introducing" themselves as their ancestor, trying to figure out which names go with which bio statements. Tell them that when they find their match, they should sit down together.
Once everyone has found their match, ask each pair to read their papers aloud——one person saying "I am PERSON" and the other reading the bio statement.
If there are enough ancestors, do a second or even a third round.
