Activity 1: Opening Scenario
Activity time: 10 minutes
Description of Activity
Share this scenario:
Your congregation has an ongoing relationship with a local organization serving at-risk youth. The relationship includes advocacy financial support. As a result of budget cuts, the organization will soon be defunct and the youth it serves cut off from vital services. Your congregation immediately organizes to contact government officials, write letters to the editor, and raise a public voice to try and save the funding for the organization.
Ask: "What moral arguments do you use to make your case?"
