Taking It Home, Workshop 4: William Ellery Channing
In "What Moves Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Nothing is so hard as to root out bad passions, to be upright, at whatever the cost, and to be benevolent and charitable under all provocations and difficulties. — William Ellery Channing (1780-1842)
This workshop may have resonated with deep emotions or life-changing moments or experiences too tender to share. Find some uninterrupted time to journal, meditate, or take a walk to explore those tender times in your own way. How have those moments informed your faith journey? How have they led you to, or become woven into, your Unitarian Universalist faith?
Share your thoughts and stories with a trusted friend, a family member, your minister, or your workshop or small group ministry program. Invite others to reflect on their own moments of emotional struggle and ways their Unitarian Universalist faith may have helped them find spiritual regeneration.
Faith in Action
Pay attention to the feelings of others in any interactions where issues of faith or conscience come up. Make notes in your journal about what you observe and what you learn from this Unitarian Universalist theological spiritual practice.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
