In "Love Surrounds Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
This activity acquaints participants with the names of historic figures in our faith heritage.
Gather participants. Read the list of names aloud, one at a time, asking the group to repeat each name after you so they become familiar with the pronunciation. You may also read the brief description of each person.
Lead the children to use the hand gestures and tune of "Where is Thumbkin?" In place of "Thumbkin," shout out different names of each historic person. Sing about some or all of the famous Unitarians and Universalists listed above.
Do not use the hand gestures if any children are unable to participate in that way; you can just sing the song.
