Introduction, Session 2: We Lead

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

Our leadership is just ourself. — Claudette Colvin, civil rights activist

A community is like a ship: everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm. — Henrik Ibsen, playwright

This session sets a stage and expectations for children to grow in Unitarian Universalist leadership. Participants share what they already know about leadership. They discover ways they can become faithful leaders in Unitarian Universalism and in other communities to which they belong.

The Faith in Action activity introduces a chart of revolving, shared leadership duties to use throughout the program. It is highly suggested that you include this Faith in Action in this or another early session.

This session also introduces the stoles children will wear, beginning with this session, to symbolize that they are a Unitarian Universalist worship leader. See the Program Introduction, Before You Start, for guidance on obtaining, decorating, and working with the stoles.
