|the Shining Stars singing 'Regard man as a mine rich in gems..'|
a great process of learning how to be a group occurred when we consulted about the money needed to buy fruit for next week's service project. originally they all agreed to contribute 20bob (which is like 30 cents). today we learned that 6 of them are not able to do so. we calculated 6x20 to get a total of 120bob remaining. we discussed how others may be able to contribute just 5bob while others may be able to contribute more to add up to 120. a handful of students raised their hands to contribute more than the 20bob they already had in order to cover the amount needed to buy fruit to bring to the hospital. it was a thoughtful and honorable process because they are learning to trust as well as help each other.
