Goals (Creating Home)

Creating Home will:

  • Guide participants to identify the characteristics of a home and the functions a home serves
  • Help participants articulate and affirm the location and the members of their individual family homes
  • Provide opportunities for participants to observe homes in nature and investigate how different kinds of animal homes provide security and sustenance for their inhabitants
  • Build participants’ vocabulary of faith and religious language
  • Draw connections between participants’ family home experiences and the roles, responsibilities, and rewards of belonging to a “faith home”
  • Help develop participants’ sense of belonging in their Creating Home group and in the larger congregation
  • Introduce practices from Unitarian Universalist heritage – such as the spiritual rituals of hospitality, saying grace, lighting a chalice, and sharing stories – and invite participants and their families to consider using these on their own
  • Provide multiple opportunities for participants to practice artistic self-expression and have fun.
