Introduction, Session 9: Kindness is the Key

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

You cannot shake hands with a closed fist. — Indira Ghandi

Love is not a doctrine. Peace is not an international agreement. Love and Peace are beings who live as possibilities in us. — Mary Caroline Richards, poet, potter, and philosopher

Our sixth Unitarian Universalist Principle affirms "the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all." This session shows how we can act to promote this goal in our relationships and communities. The story "The Christmas Truce" describes how soldiers on opposite sides in World War I created a ceasefire on the Christmas of 1914, meeting for a moment of shared humanity in the midst of bloody conflict. By playing a cooperative game and dramatizing solutions to conflict situations, participants explore what it means to choose peaceful relationships.
