Introduction, Session 8: Seek Truth

In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program

Friend, I have lost the way.

The way leads on.

Is there another way?

The way is one ... .

I cannot find the way.

The way leads on.

Oh, places I have passed!

That journey's done.

And what will come at last?

The way leads on.

— excerpted from "The Way" by Edwin Muir , in Singing the Living Tradition

The session introduces our fourth Unitarian Universalist Principle, a free and responsible search for truth and meaning, through the story of Egbert Ethelred Brown, a Jamaican man who converted to Unitarianism. Though he experienced many hardships to fulfill his calling to the Unitarian ministry, Brown devoted his life to inviting others to learn about our free faith.

In this session the children explore the basics of a Unitarian theology. They engage in their own search for truth and meaning and investigate the concept of a call to ministry. We add the signpost "Seek Truth" to our Faithful Journeys Path.
