Taking It Home, Workshop 2: Unitarian Universalist Journey

In "Harvest the Power," a Tapestry of Faith program

I call that mind free which jealously guards its intellectual rights and powers; which does not content itself with a passive or hereditary faith; which opens itself to light whencesoever it may come; which receives new truth as an angel from heaven. — William Ellery Channing, 19th-century

Unitarian preacher and writer

Do you have a regular spiritual practice, such as prayer, meditation, journaling, yoga, walking, singing or attending worship? Set aside time on a regular basis for your preferred spiritual practice. If you do not have such a practice, explore different ways to nurture your spirit.

Take home your faith representation. Initiate a conversation with family or friends about what helps them to feel at home in the universe. Their answers might surprise you and make you think more deeply about your own faith.
