In "Spirit of Life," a Tapestry of Faith program
Offer these words of welcome:
Welcome to this program on Unitarian Universalist spirituality. Each of our personal spiritualities is shaped by our roots, traditions, and heritage, by our role models, mentors, and teachers. Each one of us has had much life experience. Here may we learn from one another. I'm so glad you are here!
Distribute Handout 1. Invite a participant to light the chalice, while you lead the group in reciting the unison chalice-lighting words.
Invite participants to read silently along with you as you read aloud the Unitarian Universalist Principle and Source that this workshop highlights.
In this workshop about roots, invite participants to share their full names. You may ask participants to share how their full name connects to their spiritual or cultural roots.
Explain that this workshop focuses on the line "roots hold me close."
Invite participants to rise in body or spirit and sing "Spirit of Life" by Carolyn McDade, Hymn 123 in Singing the Living Tradition.
