Introduction, Session 12: Make Peace

In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program

Surely they hitched their wagon to a star – and though it fell to Earth, it left a pathway so bright that it still points the way to perfection.  – Susan Thwang, on the Hopedale Community co-founded by Adin Ballou

In this session, participants explore the sixth Unitarian Universalist Principle, the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all. They hear about Adin Ballou, a Universalist Christian pacifist who helped establish the Hopedale Community, where members worked to create a new way of living based on the teachings of Jesus. Participants create peace pinwheels that represent their hopes for peace in our world. We add the signpost "Make Peace" to the Faithful Journeys Path.
