Introduction, Session 7: Create Magic, Change the World

In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program

Whatever you think you can do, or believe you can do, begin it. Action has magic, grace, and power in it. — Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Any ritual is an opportunity for transformation. — Starhawk

In this session, participants explore the third Unitarian Universalist Principle, acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations. Children hear a contemporary story about Aisha, a pagan Unitarian Universalist girl, who celebrates the harvest holiday Lammas at a peace rally. During the celebration, she finds the courage to take the stage and lend her voice to the gathering.

Participants learn a concept of "magic" based on focusing one's energy on purposeful, positive action to change the world in a positive way. We discuss ways our spiritual practices, such as the pagan practice of magic, lead us to involvement and faithful action in the world. We add the signpost "Create Magic" to our Faithful Journeys Path.

Review the materials list for Activity 6, Creating Wands, well in advance of this session to obtain all the materials you will need.
