Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Faithful Journeys: A Program about Pilgrimages of Faith in Action for Grades 2-3

Spiritual Preparation

If it would be helpful in creating sacred space, light a candle or chalice. Reflect on your own feelings relative to social change, your faith, and the democratic process. What does the fifth Principle, the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process, mean to you? How does it inform your living?

Ask yourself:

  • How much faith do you have in the wisdom of the democratic process?
  • How confident do you feel that your participation can effect change?
  • What is your experience of having an impact in the democratic process, even when your cause fails to become policy or law?
  • What connections do you feel between your spiritual growth and getting involved in the world around you? How would you wish for the children in Faithful Journeys to answer this question, after experiencing this session?
