Activity 3: Sharing of Meaningful Objects

Activity time: 30 minutes

Ask: “Was it easy or difficult to decide which object to bring with you?” Allow time for responses.

Tell participants that you will ask them one at a time to stand or sit near the chalice and share their object with other participants. Ask them to hold their meaningful object while they tell its story, how it speaks to them and how it relates to their thinking about life. Tell them that a short period of silence will follow each person’s story and reflection. Model the sharing using your own object, and then ask for a volunteer to begin.
