In "Moral Tales," a Tapestry of Faith program
This session promotes the Golden Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," and the suggestion from scripture to "Love thy neighbor as thyself." The central story, "The Good Samaritan" from Christian scripture, guides exploration of what it means to "love thy neighbor" and helps raise the idea that our "neighbors" include everyone in the world.
The experience of helping and caring for others will be explored in the session through role plays and a cooperative game. The session also promotes two Unitarian Universalist Principles, the inherent worth and dignity of all people; and justice, equity and compassion. The words "Golden Rule" will be added to the Moral Compass poster.
Before planning the session, read descriptions of all of the games, including those which are presented as alternate activities. Choose the one(s) you think will work best with the particular group of children and in your meeting space.
