In "Love Surrounds Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
We cannot all do great things, but we can do small things with great love. — Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Catholic nun and missionary
IN TODAY'S SESSION... The participants talked about how love surrounds them and how, as Unitarian Universalists, they are instruments of giving love in the world. In the story "The Wise Sailimai: A Muslim Tale from China" participants heard about a young girl who answered four questions for the king to save the life of her father-in-law. One of the questions was "What is stronger than steel?" The answer was love. Participants learned the song "Love Surrounds Me."
