Introduction, Session 12: A Peaceful and Fair World

In "Love Surrounds Us," a Tapestry of Faith program

It isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it. — Eleanor Roosevelt, 20th-century First Lady of the United States, in a 1951 radio broadcast

Kindergarteners and first graders may not understand the abstract meaning of peace but they understand their feelings when there is fairness and unfairness. This session reinforces our sixth Principle, "We believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world." Children explore ways to ensure everyone has the basic human needs of clothing, food, shelter, and love. Beginning with the beloved communities in their lives, participants explore what it means to work toward a peaceful, fair and free world. They gain confidence in their ability to make a difference in the world as Unitarian Universalists acting on our sixth Principle.
