Description of Activity

Youth discuss scenarios involving ethical dilemmas.

Seek a volunteer to read each of the two scenarios. For each dilemma, open the floor to reactions and answers. How could forgiveness play a part in this dilemma? Ask the youth if it reminds them of other dilemmas they have experienced or heard of, real or fictional.

If you have time, invite volunteers to role play the dilemmas.
