Part of Families

Activity time: 5 minutes

Description of Activity

  • Gather the group together in a circle.
  • Pragmatics:
    • Ask if someone would prepare a chalice lighting response for next time.
    • Remind participants to bring cameras for the next session.
    • Confirm and/or arrange youth co-leaders for next session. (optional)
  • Invite participants to share their reflections on what worked during the activity and what would have worked better. Depending on the group, you can do this exercise either as a round robin or more fluidly.
  • Offer a closing benediction. A simple blessing is offered below, but any blessing or closing sentiment is appropriate.

As Unitarian Universalists, we respect and honor each other and our families. Blessed be.
