Introduction, Session 6: Signs of Caring

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

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. — Leo F. Buscaglia

As Unitarian Universalists, we believe members of communities take care of each other. This session identifies ways we care for others in our families, at school, in the congregation, and in the wider world. Children learn about the common Unitarian Universalist ritual of sharing our joys and concerns. Many congregations include Sharing of Joys and Concerns in worship. However, if your congregation call this ritual by a different name or conducts it in a different manner than is described in this session, replace the details with ones that fit your congregation. Feel free to include other rituals around caring that your congregation may practice.
