Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Toolbox of Faith: A Program That Helps Children Discover the Uses of Faith

Leader Reflection and Planning

Reflect on these questions and discuss them with your co-leaders:

  • How do we feel about today's session?
  • What parts of the session worked well?
  • What can we learn from the experience of this session?
  • What preparations do we need to make for the next session?

You may want to reflect on the aspects of courage and conviction that seemed personally meaningful to you. If you have made your own list of convictions, what might you find useful to do with this list? As you asked the children to consider, which of these deserve the energy and attention of your life? What support for your courage and your convictions do you find in your religious community, your family and friends, or your work? How might you strengthen that support? How has leading this session changed you? How do you think this session may change the participants?

What follow-up conversations or activities would you like to engage in as a result of this session? With the Toolbox of Faith group? In your own life? In your congregation?
