Introduction, Session 13: A Matter of Perspective

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

Say not 'I have found the truth,' but rather 'I have found a truth.' — Khalil Gibran, from The Prophet

Unitarian Universalism is a living tradition. We expect that what we find to be true may change over time as new life experiences shape our search. This session guides participants to "seek the truth in love" again and again as part of their own search for meaning. As they learn to anticipate a lifelong search for not one but many truths, they discover how the lens of our own experiences determines the truths we find.

Note: Some activities rely on participants' visual experience to teach the concepts of differing and changing perspectives. Assign a co-leader or another participant to describe what they see to any visually impaired participant, to enrich the activity for both. Also, look in the Including All Participants sections for specific activity adaptations to fully include a visually impaired child.
