In "What We Choose: Ethics for Unitarian Universalists," a Tapestry of Faith program
Have your guest share their knowledge and experiences related to a specific congregational social justice project. Invite participants to work with your guest to examine the project using the framework of an ethic of risk. Ask:
Invite participants to form triads and, in their small groups, suggest next steps in this project, using Welch's ethic of risk as a guiding ethical framework. Give each triad a piece of newsprint and a marker and ask them to write down two or three possible next actions. After ten minutes, invite each triad to share their thoughts. Continue the conversation with your guest about the ways in which participants commit to involvement in future actions.
Explore ways to engage the entire congregation in broad questions regarding your congregation's place in the community and relationships with people who are marginalized or oppressed:
