Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

Description of Activity

Read or tell the story aloud. Then ask:

  • Did you like it? Why/why not?
  • Does the story say anything directly about soul? (No.) Is it possible that soul is the place where God hides in every human?
  • Does the story suggest there is something holy or divine in every person? Is that "something" the same thing as soul? Why/why not?
  • Is that "something" at least connected with soul in some way?
