Week 1: Patience and Kindness

[Kindness]

Give Back Film: RAK (2:09) (2:42) (3:03)

Summary:

A series of films where a group of young men have decided to go out of their way to do Random Acts of Kindness toward strangers.

Reflection Questions:

  • How do people react to the random acts of kindness?
  • Where does kindness get its power?
  • Many of these examples involve giving things of monetary value. What are other things we can give to others that have just as much or more value?
  • How do personal or social values foster or hinder random acts of kindness?

[Patience]

What is That? (4:13)

Summary:

This a Greek short film made in 2007. An elderly father and adult son are sitting on a bench. Suddenly a sparrow lands across from them. The father asks the son, “What is that?” multiple times. The son grows more impatient each time. What the father does next is a beautiful lesson in patience through love.

Note: The video is very grainy.

Reflection Questions:

  • What lesson does the father teach his son?
  • Have you ever had an experience when you lost your temper? What happened?
  • How can you develop patience?
  • How does patience demonstrate kindness?
