Learning Objectives, Session 9: Spirit Of Life (Canteen)

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

Participants will:

  • Explore the qualities of water through discussion and hands-on experiences
  • Make a symbolic connection between the fluidity and pervasiveness of water and the fluidity and pervasiveness of the Spirit of Life
  • Develop a personal sense of the Spirit of Life, by reaching into our Jewish and Christian heritage, our Unitarian Universalist love of reason, and our willingness to seek the divine in everything
  • Reenact the water communion through visualization and emphasize how all water is connected, just as all things are connected by the Spirit of Life
  • Learn the Unitarian Universalist hymn, "Spirit of Life"
  • Focus on one of the sources of the Unitarian Universalist Living Tradition, "the direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life"
