Goals, Session 16: Resiliency (Hard Hat)

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

This session will:

  • Help deepen participants' Unitarian Universalist identity, ethical discernment and understanding of Unitarian Universalist faith through reflection and discussion
  • Demonstrate how Unitarian Universalism is a faith that helps one find the endurance, perseverance, and hope to be resilient in the face of life's difficulties
  • Convey the idea that Unitarian Universalism values a free and responsible search for truth and meaning (fourth Principle)
  • Through the story of Miriam from Hebrew scripture, connect participants with one of the Sources of Unitarian Universalist faith: the words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love (second Source)
  • Engage participants in the spiritual practices of chalice lighting, voicing of joys and concerns, and intentional discussion.
