Introduction, Session 9: Love Surrounds Us in Our Search

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

Be ours a religion which, like sunshine, goes everywhere. — Theodore Parker, 19th-century Unitarian minister and abolitionist

The theme of this session is "Our search for beliefs comes from sources of love." Children learn that Unitarian Universalists have the freedom to build our own theology; we affirm our UU Principles, yet we are not required to believe any one thing.

Unitarian Universalism is unique in that it does not have one creed, but invites us to examine many sources of wisdom to find those which ring true for us personally. By encouraging spiritual growth in this way, our congregations attract people from many different religious traditions who hold a variety of religious beliefs.

The story is presented as a short play and the activities in this session invite participants to think about what is sacred to them and others.
