Activity time: 5 minutes

Materials for Activity

  • Worship table or designated space
  • Chalice, candle, and lighter or LED battery-operated candle
  • Handout with group learnings (Workshop 22)

Preparation for Activity

  • Prepare a list of the learnings the group generated in Workshop 22 and copy it as a handout for all participants.

Description of Activity

Light the chalice or invite a participant to light it while you share this quote from Rev. Peter Morales:

We need to feel connected. We need to give and to receive, to listen and to be heard, to touch and to be touched. We need to join hands to work for justice. We need to come together to celebrate and worship. We need a place where we can seek wholeness.

Distribute the handout you have prepared. Invite volunteers to read aloud the learnings generated in Workshop 22. Explain that this workshop, including the worship service to follow, is guided by the antiracist/multicultural principle of "going public" and being accountable for what you learned.
