"It's taken me two years to let go of that," wept the sixth-former after she dropped her stone into the bowl, and placed the MP3 player on the table in front of her.

This activity encourages students to recognise and begin to 'let go' of the hurtful things that others have said or done to them by holding and then dropping a stone into a bowl of clean water. Forgiveness is about letting go.

This prayer activity is probably one of the most powerful in our library. If you include it in your prayer space plans, we would recommend that you post a confident, sensitive team member close to the activity, so that they can respond to any students who need to talk with someone afterwards.
