Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 9: Tolerance

In "A Place of Wholeness," a Tapestry of Faith program

Find a quiet space and light a chalice. Remember that the flaming chalice symbol was developed in an atmosphere of intolerance during World War II. Today, it represents the warmth of caring community and the spirit of love and tolerance.

Reflect on the role of tolerance, pluralism, and multiculturalism in your life. Ask yourself:

  • Have you experienced hostile or oppressive situations where you felt you had to hide parts of myself?
  • Where do you feel most able to be yourself?
  • Have you had trouble understanding or accepting others fully?

Reflect on your expectations for this workshop. What difference do you hope it will make in the lives of participants? What difference do you think it might make in your life? How will you help youth explore these issues in a way that is both safe and challenging?
