In "Signs of Our Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program
While we have the gift of life, it seems to me the only tragedy is to allow part of us to die - whether it is our spirit, our creativity or our glorious uniqueness. — Gilda Radner
Children learn that to recognize the beauty of each person's uniqueness is a sign of Unitarian Universalist faith. A story from Santeria/Yoruba tradition leads into a discussion about stereotyping where children are encouraged to share their experiences. Activity 3 engages children in cultural sharing, a respectful alternative to cultural appropriation. Though this topic might seem above the heads of young children, introducing it now opens a door for future, deeper understanding.
For Alternate Activity 3, Different Beliefs, invite guests a few weeks ahead of time.
