MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD - FEBRUARY 12, 2017
Blessing of the Rice Bowls
This session started with a short ceremony where Fr. Jun blessed the Rice Bowls before they were distributed to all children and youth in the Religious Education program.
Whole Group Exercise on "Two Feet of Love"
The lead catechist explained that there are two feet of love: charitable works and social justice. This tool describes two distinct, but complementary, ways we can put the Gospel in action in response to God's love: social justice (addressing systemic, root causes of problems that affect many people) and charitable works (short-term, emergency assistance for individuals).
Small Group Breakouts
The group of families was broken into four groups and each worked on different ways to put the "Two Feet of Love" into action. The small groups were Hero of Justice, Writing Letters to Legislators, Adult Rice Bowl Education, "Two Feet of Love in Action".
Home Kit - Family Activities
This take-home resource includes several family activities to perform during Lent using the Rice Bowl and applying the "Two Feet of Love" tool.
