In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program
Right and Wrong
The challenge question in this session asks how youth might teach a younger child about right and wrong. Explore research on children's social reasoning on the website of the Museum of Science (Boston) Living Laboratory. Find brief descriptions of studies of school-age and younger children's developing generosity, apologies, fairness and truth.
The UUA passed two resolutions, one in 1966 and one in 1987, about world hunger. Read the full text on the UUA website.
A Kids' Guide to Hunger & Homelessness by Cathryn Berger Kaye, available from the UUA bookstore, shows what kids can do to help their communities combat hunger and homelessness and includes facts, quotations, real-life examples, service projects, resources, a note to teachers and other adults—and inspiration to get out there and make a difference.
This session's Faith in Action mentioned the idea of a UU Sabbath. For a Unitarian Universalist perspective on the Jewish Sabbath and how its practice can affirm our Principles, read "Ecological Spiritual Delight" by Patricia Guthmann Haresch in the Spring 2009 UU World.
The Fall 2006 UU World article "Hungry for Democracy" by Frances Moore Lappe connects the ideas of economic justice, hunger and democracy.
Part of the United Nations system, the World Food Program is the largest humanitarian agency dedicated to fighting hunger worldwide. The WFP website is rich with project descriptions, statistics, resources for teachers and students and links including one to the Free Rice game which allows users to donate 10 grains of rice for each word defined correctly in an online quiz.
