Description of Activity

Youth explore the idea of forgiveness on a personal level.

Ask each participant to sit quietly, with some space around them for a time of inner reflection. Read Leader Resource 3, Mirror and Window Meditation.

Following the meditation, ask participants to take a few minutes to reflect on how they are feeling. Invite volunteers to share their thoughts or feelings about the meditation. Ask them these questions for further reflection:

  • How is forgiveness embodied?
  • Is saying "I am sorry" enough?
