Introduction, Session 13: Responding with Love

In "Love Will Guide Us," a Tapestry of Faith program

The sun never says to the earth,
"You owe me."
Look what happens with a love like that.
It lights up the whole sky. — Hafiz, Sufi poet

Participants learn from the third Source of Unitarian Universalism, "wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life." A story from Sufism, a mystical facet of Islam, demonstrates responding to negativity with gentleness and love. The Sufi faith encourages a personal relationship with the divine, exemplified by the dancing of Whirling Dervishes. The children experience a dancing meditation—not in imitation of the Whirling Dervishes, but to find movement of their own.
