In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program
Explain to the group that we are going to celebrate world community today by enjoying some activities that children do in different places in the world that have partner churches connected to our Unitarian Universalist congregations in the U.S. Say:
The song "Alunelul" has a traditional dance from
. Transylvania is now a region in modern
. It is a region where Unitarian Universalism has a long history and a connection with churches there today.
If you will teach the children to sing the tune, play or sing it first and then teach them to sing it.
Then, teach the dance steps. The dance is traditionally done several times over, increasing in speed each time.
Lead the group to dance for the time remaining.
Invite children with limited mobility to control the music or to dance on the inside of the circle so they will be safe.
