In "A Place of Wholeness," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants explore times in history that Unitarians, Universalists, and Unitarian Universalists took action to expand religious freedom. It challenges participants to look at areas where they themselves, or people in their community, lack freedom and what they might do about it.
Start by explaining that they will be looking at three stories of religious freedom. The first comes from Unitarians in the 1500s. The second is from Universalists in the 1700s. The third comes from Unitarian Universalists in the 1990s.
Use Leader Resource 1, Three Stories of Religious Freedom, to present the stories as you have planned.
After the stories are read, break participants into groups of three or four to discuss the following questions:
Invite all participants back into the large group. Ask youth to each share one reflection on freedom that came up during the discussion.
