The workbook offers ideas on how to use these stories in multifaith settings, retreats, religious education, worship, or as a fundraiser. Each of the stories can be explored as stand-alone lessons. It’s been suggested that this program may be a good fit for children’s chapel or a season of study.
Following each story is a section of activities including discussion questions modeled after small group/covenant group activities. These can be used to engage a family or community member in an intergenerational context. Also included is a service project that can be created to take the principle out into our larger congregations or communities.
Finally, for the kid in all of us, we’ve included a coloring page inspired the story and the principle.
Working with the Script
The one act play is written for three performers. However, we have also included how to expand that number for up to 19 participants or more with the addition of non speaking roles.
There are suggestions on how to stage, costume and prop the production. And we have included how to adapt the script by the interchanging of gender pronouns and the use of gender neutral pronouns.
