Introduction, Session 16: Love Is the Golden Rule

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

Descendent of slave and of slave owner, I had already been called poet, lawyer, teacher, and friend. Now I was empowered to minister the sacrament of One in whom there is no north or south, no black or white, no male or female—only the spirit of love and reconciliation drawing us all toward the goal of human wholeness. — Rev. Dr. Anna Pauline (Pauli) Murray (1910-1985), civil rights activist, writer, lawyer, teacher, and Episcopal priest

This concluding session reinforces and celebrates connections among love, Unitarian Universalism, and the seven Sources. The story "Love is the Golden Rule" draws from many Sources to encourage participants to hold love as a central guiding force. The children take home a set of UU Source stars or constellations as a reminder to rely on our Sources in life's ongoing search for truth and meaning and as they make choices about how they will act.

If you have time, Alternate Activity 2, Rules We Live By, provides an interactive lead-in to the story.

Consider inviting all the adults who have led previous sessions, to enhance and affirm children's recap of their experiences and accomplishments in this program.
