Description of Activity

This activity connects the different activities of the workshop and brings participants together with song.

Gather the group in a circle. Debrief the workshop with these questions:

  • What new insights did you gain today?
  • How have your thoughts changed about who your neighbors are?
  • What does it mean to be a Unitarian Universalist neighbor?

Explain that this workshop will close with a song about what calls Unitarian Universalists to treat both stranger and friend with compassion. Lead participants to sing Hymn 151, "I Wish I Knew How."
