Unity

Object Lesson

I used this to teach how unity strengthens us and dis-unity weakens us. Have a YW take a pencil and break it. Talk about how it was easy to break because it was only one pencil.

Speaking Negatively about others or Being Judgemental

Object Lesson

Talk about how when we only focus on the negative aspects of a person that is all we see, we can’t see the good things about them.

Pop Quiz

Object Lesson

During my second year of nursing school, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I breezed through the questions until I read the last one: “What is the first name of the janitor who cleans the school?” Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times, but how could I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Before…
