Introduction, Session 12: Seeing Truth/True Seeing

In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program

Truth, like surgery, may hurt, but it cures. — Han Suyin, writer, A Many Splendored Thing

The Blake covenant asserts that we "seek the truth in love." This session offers the story of Unitarian Universalist minister David Pettee, who sought the truth about his family's history of owning slaves. In finding truth, he found pain, but also joy and healing. The children discern truth from lies in a game, and express the "tied together" theme of this program by weaving a God's Eye, an emblem of true seeing.
