Description of Activity
Bring participants together and welcome them. Invite a volunteer to light the chalice as you share a favorite children's chalice lighting used in your congregation.
Invite participants to go around the circle and say their names and briefly tell of a time when they were brave. As the stories are shared, point out that bravery can mean confronting a bully, like David did Goliath, but it can also mean taking a stance for what is right and fair, which is what today's story is about.
