Tapestry of Faith: Building Bridges: A World Religions Program for 8th-9th Grades

Leader Reflection and Planning

Review today's workshop with your co-leader. This workshop introduced an important historical time in the development of world religion, as well as five enduring faiths. How did the youth handle this large amount of material? Were they able to absorb most of it? Did they connect the concept of ahimsa to their own lives? Could they engage the familiar subject of interrelatedness through a story from another faith tradition? Did they seem to understand the deeper religious and philosophical concepts, particularly those they encountered for the first time today? Which kinds of activities worked well with your group?

Discuss how you will apply your answers to these questions in future workshops.

Follow up on displaying the youth's flaming chalice artwork.
