Description of Activity

Briefly summarize the session with words like these:

Today we talked about big questions and we focused on one: "Where do we come from?" We heard a UU song that asks that question and says "life is a riddle and a mystery." In WIT Time, we thought about our own answers. Next, we heard a story about where absolutely everything comes from. Finally, we did our first WCUU broadcast, and heard some typical UU ideas about where we come from.

Distribute the Taking It Home handout. Suggest participants use the activities to continue exploring the themes of today's session.

Relight the chalice. Ask the group to say these closing words with you:

May this light shine on in each of us as we search for the answers to our own biggest questions.

Extinguish the chalice (or ask the Kid for the Day to do it). Sound the bell or tingshas to end the session.
