Goals, Session 16: Working Together

In "Moral Tales," a Tapestry of Faith program

This session will:

  • Increase participants' understanding of our Unitarian Universalist Principles, particularly the inherent worth and dignity of every person, acceptance of one another and encouragement of spiritual growth, the goal of world community, and respect for the interdependent web of all existence
  • Create a forum for children to share with one another about acts of goodness and justice
  • Foster participants' pride in sharing acts of goodness and justice that they have done (or witnessed)
  • Demonstrate that individuals gain strength by pooling their strengths with others, and sticking together
  • Help participants articulate and appreciate situations in which they have experienced cooperation
  • Present opportunities for cooperative problem-solving
  • Strengthen participants' Unitarian Universalist identity by demonstrating the connection between the choices we make in our lives and the beliefs and attitudes we hold as Unitarian Universalists, including the Principles and Sources
  • Strengthen participants' connection to and sense of responsibility to their Moral Tales group
  • Optional: Give participants opportunities to review and apply learning from previous Moral Tales sessions
  • Optional: Model the rightness of celebrating a collective accumulation of acts of goodness performed (or witnessed) by members of the group.
