Introduction, Session 8: Love is Accepting

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

Learning to live with what you're born with/is the process,/the involvement./the making of a life. — Diane Wakoski, American poet and essayist, in The Motorcycle Betrayal Poems

This session focuses on the fourth Unitarian Universalist Source, expressed in children's language as "Jewish and Christian teachings which tell us to love all others as we love ourselves." The story from Hebrew scripture of Jacob and Rachel meeting for the first time highlights the importance of questioning gender stereotypes and of experiencing and showing emotions. Participants engage in dress-up and role playing to encourage discussion about gender issues. They explore how they communicate their feelings and how they understand the feelings of others.
