Sometimes we say and do things that hurt people, but then we are sorry about what we said or did.

  • Pick a stone and think about the person that you have mistreated unfairly and you wish to say I am sorry.
  •  If you want to ‘say sorry’, take the stone and drop it into the bowl beside the cross.
  • Afterwards, you might want to say sorry to the person as well.
