In "Faith like a River," a Tapestry of Faith program
Reflect on a time when you learned something new about the history of your congregation, or about Unitarian Universalism, that shifted your sense of identity as a Unitarian Universalist.
What feelings were associated with the shift? If you heard a story of achievement and courage, did you feel unexpectedly proud? If you heard a story about a time when our forebears fell short of Unitarian Universalist ideals, you may have felt chagrined or sad. Perhaps, if you learned a story of a wrestling to find the right thing to do in the face of difficult choices, you might have felt a connection to the struggles of others. Recall the circumstances of your new learning and the feeling you had in response.
You may wish to ask participants to engage in this same spiritual practice so that they, too, arrive at the workshop centered and ready to engage with the material and the group.
