Taking It Home, Workshop 5: Move In the Hand: Living Our Spirituality in Our Day-To-Day Lives
In "Spirit of Life," a Tapestry of Faith program
We covenant to affirm and promote... The inherent worth and dignity of every person.
The living tradition we share draws from... Wisdom from the world's religions which inspire us in our ethical and spiritual life.
The living tradition we share draws from... Spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature. — Principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association
There are several ways to take today's workshop home. You might like to:
- Discuss ideas for bringing the spiritual into everyday tasks with housemates, family members, or co-workers. You may gain particularly valuable insight from people of different faith traditions.
- Take note, for a day, of all the tasks you engage in. Try to evaluate your spiritual presence with each task. Notice whether each task felt mindful or mindless; whether you felt or spoke curses or gratitude; and whether you performed the task with loving intention or spite.
- Write in your journal about ways you can invite spiritual connection into your everyday tasks.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
