Introduction, Session 10: Signs of Welcome

In "Signs of Our Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program

Those of us who have come through the great doors, who have made of this place the soul of Sunday on our spiritual journey, share a commitment... to radical hospitality. This is the heart of our faith: love, service, justice, peace. — Rev. Kim K. Crawford Harvie, Unitarian Universalist minister

Welcoming others is a sign of our Unitarian Universalist faith. In this session, the children hear a story based on a Hawaiian tale in which Pele, the goddess of fire, visits two families in disguise to teach a lesson of welcoming. They sing and discuss "Come, Come, Whoever, You Are," a popular Unitarian Universalist hymn based on words of the Sufi mystic, Rumi. Participants share personal experiences and brainstorm ways to make the group welcoming and accessible to everyone.
