Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Riddle and Mystery: A Program on the Big Questions for Grade 6

Leader Reflection and Planning

Meet with co-leaders after the session to reflect on how it went. How was your mix of discussion and action? How comfortable did youth seem when sharing ideas about death? Did you manage to convey the information you wanted to while respecting their own ideas? How well do you think youth understood the different ways various belief systems answer the question "What happens when we die?" Are they clear about what Unitarian Universalists think about death and how we memorialize family and community members who die?

Did any youth show signs of concern about either the idea of death or their own experiences with death or life-threatening illness which you should communicate to parents, your religious educator or your minister?

Note that the Big Question for Session 7 is "Why do bad things happen?" If you will lead Session 7 next, plan to prepare by reflecting on your own answers to that.
