Introduction, Session 7: The Second U

In "Amazing Grace," a Tapestry of Faith program

Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.

— Buddha

This session introduces the Universalist strand of Unitarian Universalism. It is a companion to Session 6, The First U, which introduces the Unitarian strand. Session 7 is the third of four that focuses on Unitarian Universalism.

It begins by asking youth to identify and model the animals they would have chosen to save had they been in charge at the time of Noah. That activity serves as a jumping-off point to the Universalist concept of universal salvation. Next, there is a story about a famous Universalist woman, one of the first women to become ordained in response to a call to ministry. Participants then use movement to answer questions about being called in their own lives.

The session's Faith in Action segment asks youth to consider working to help domestic animals by volunteering at local animal shelters. You can make the activity more rewarding by finding out in advance where such shelters are and how youth may help them.
