Activity 3: Is There More?

Activity time: 15 minutes

Materials for Activity

  • Newsprint, markers, and tape

Preparation for Activity

  • With your co-facilitator brainstorm themes, issues, and historical events you think this program did not cover.
  • Post blank newsprint.

Description of Activity

Acknowledge that no program can include everything. Invite the group to brainstorm the themes, issues, and historical events this workshop series has not explored. Ask: Are there justice themes that are important to this congregation or to you personally that were not part of this workshop series? Are there areas not included in this program in which Unitarian, Universalist, or Unitarian Universalist individuals or congregations have done significant justice work?

Record the brainstorm results on a sheet of newsprint. Participants may name some themes that are in workshops you did not offer or themes that are not part of program at all.

Invite the group to consider using the workshops in this program as a model for bringing the congregation's own history of resistance and transformation into focus.
