Taking It Home, Workshop 1: Spirit Of Life: Exploring Spirituality for Unitarian Universalists
In "Spirit of Life," a Tapestry of Faith program
We covenant to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning.
The living tradition we share draws from... Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces that create and uphold life. — Principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association
Share your list of words of wonder and reverence with some members of your household, a few of your friends, or some of your co-workers. Ask them which words speak to them. Share your favorites. Conversations about wonder and reverence can deepen family, friend, and even work relationships—even if your words differ completely from one another's!
Start a journal in whic h you record when and where you witness the Spirit of Life in the days between this workshop and your next meeting. Examples might include in a conversation, in the misty fog, in someone's unselfish kindness, in the sudsy dishwater, or in singing. In your journal, describe your thoughts and feelings.
Write a letter to the self you might have been, had your spiritual journey gone a different way.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
