“Toolbox of Faith” (16 sessions) / “Love Connects Us” (8 sessions)
Toolbox of Faith
What tools does Unitarian Universalism offer for the challenges of life? Toolbox of Faith invites children to reflect on the qualities of our UU faith—such as integrity, courage, and love—as tools they can use in living their lives and building their own faith.
Each session uses a tool as a metaphor for an important quality of our faith such as reflection (symbolized by a mirror), integrity (compass), spirit of life (canteen) and justice (a flashlight). Reflecting on the qualities (tools) of our faith, children gain insight into what makes our faith important in their lives, and how they can grow in our faith.
Love Connects Us
In this program, participants learn to seek guidance in life through the lens of our Unitarian Universalist Sources, with an emphasis on love. Together we ask questions such as :
“Where did we come from?”
“What is our relationship to the Earth and other creatures?”
“How can we respond with love, even in bad situations?”
“What happens when you die?”
Sessions apply wisdom from our Sources to help participants answer these questions. Participants will learn that asking questions is valued in Unitarian Universalism, even as they begin to shape their own answers.
