Goals, Session 10: Speak Out

In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program

This session will:

  • Strengthen Unitarian Universalist identity by introducing Maria Cook, a 19th-century Universalist minister and practitioner of civil disobedience, as an example of our second Source, words and deeds of prophetic women and men that challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love
  • Explore our fifth Unitarian Universalist Principle, the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process
  • Demonstrate how standing up to others, including those in power, in order to follow one's conscience can be an act of faith
  • Give participants inspiration, affirmation, and strategies for standing up for what they think is right in their daily lives
  • Teach children how their actions can and do express their faith — their ideas of right and wrong, their values and their beliefs.
