Goals, Session 10: Courage And Conviction (Saddlebags)

In "Toolbox of Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program

This session will:

  • Deepen Unitarian Universalist identity, ethical discernment, and understanding of Unitarian Universalist faith through reflection and discussion
  • Convey that Unitarian Universalism affirms courage and conviction as integral aspects of a life of faith
  • Demonstrate that Unitarian Universalism is a faith that values an unending search for truth and meaning, encourages individuals and faith communities to discern convictions that they find spiritually imperative, and supports them in standing up for these convictions in their lives and communities
  • Show how Unitarian Universalism helps people find courage to stand up for what they believe
  • Present Unitarian Universalism as a faith with a long tradition of courageous leadership in matters of the spirit, exemplified by the early pioneers of the Universalist movement who traveled and preached, often at great peril, because they believed strongly in religion that values faith, hope and love over anger, punishment, and fear
  • Engage participants in the spiritual practices of chalice lighting, voicing of joys and concerns, and intentional discussion.
