In "Love Will Guide Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Through her love of discovery and learning, Cecilia Payne made significant contributions to astronomy. Not everyone in the world has the same access and tools to learn. Books for Africa is an organization dedicated to bringing books to people in underdeveloped nations.
Plan a short presentation with the group to present to the congregation before the collection plate is passed during the service. Talk about Cecilia Payne and her love of learning. Tell the congregation that this collection is an opportunity to give others more of a chance to learn from books to which they have had limited, if any, access.
Process this Faith in Action activity with the group by saying:
As Unitarian Universalists, it is important that we share our resources with those with who have less than we do. Helping people get access to books is feeding their minds. We know we can donate money and food for people who are hungry. There are people in the world hungry for learning.
Invite participants to discuss this statement. Help the children make connections between fostering someone to use reason and science on their own and letting the fifth UU Source guide us to love.
