In "Spirit of Life," a Tapestry of Faith program
Offer these words of welcome:
Welcome to this program on Unitarian Universalist spirituality as expressed in our lives in the world. The peace, liberty and justice we want is an expression of our spirituality. Our spiritual lives can support us in being who we want to be in the world. Our lives make a difference in shaping justice and love. Unitarian Universalist spirituality calls us to participation and involvement, sustains us for living lives of truth and love, and nourishes our hope and our joy.
Invite a participant to light the chalice as you lead the group in reciting the unison chalice-lighting words.
Distribute Handout 1 and invite participants to read silently along with you as you read aloud the Unitarian Universalist Principle and Source that this workshop highlights.
Invite participants to share their names. Invite them to reflect on the news of the past week and briefly share something that made them think about justice or injustice in the world.
Explain that this workshop focuses on the line "giving life the shape of justice."
Invite participants to rise in body or spirit and sing "Spirit of Life" by Carolyn McDade, Hymn 123 in Singing the Living Tradition.
