To help the children experience what it means to be a prophet by challenging them to take a visual stand for something in which they believe.
The children will create and then wear for one week a ?Prophet Button? to give them an experience of speaking out for those suffering from some injustice.
-homelessness and lack of decent of housing
- killing the unborn (abortion) or the sick and elderly (euthanasia)
- children being put down or ridiculed at school
- families unable to afford adequate health care
- people choosing dishonesty and greed over the welfare of others
- environmental issues, such as polluted air and water, the destruction of wetlands and natural resources
The children could be asked to keep a journal of their experiences.
The children might need some preparation for how to handle any negative comments or reactions that they receive during the week.
If there are children in your group with special needs (physical, visual, hearing, language, or behavioral disabilities), adapt the activity accordingly.
