Description of Activity

Thank first-time guests for their contributions to the group. Gather youth in a circle and remind the group that they walk on religious ground that was cared for by those who went before them. Invite volunteers to say the name of one Unitarian Universalist, perhaps from today's workshop or someone in the congregation, who they admire and what about that person's life the youth will strive to make a part of their own life. Once everyone has shared, thank them for caring for this ground that they, too, are passing along to future Unitarian Universalists.

End the workshop with these words:

May we leave here ready to remember and honor those who walked the road to justice before us. Let us walk forward with these people's actions guiding our steps.
