Description of Activity

Bring the group to the circle. Ask everyone to cross their arms in front of their body and then take the hands of the people next to them. Say "We are tied together by seeking the truth in love when we... " Ask anyone who wishes to fill in a word or phrase about how we are tied together in a search for truth, in love. When everyone who wants to share has done so, open the circle by having everyone, while still holding hands, turn to their right, so that everyone is facing out and no longer has their arms crossed in front of their body.

Distribute copies of Taking It Home that you have prepared. Thank and dismiss participants.
