Introduction, Session 13: The Gift Of Learning Together

In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program

'No problem can be solved by the same consciousness that created it. We need to see the world anew.'

Albert Einstein

This session introduces the intangible gift of learning together. As Unitarian Universalists, we use this gift in affirming and promoting our seven Principles. We cannot strive for justice, equity and compassion in human relations (second Principle), nor work toward the goal of world community (sixth Principle), without being wiling to learn what others feel and need. To pursue a free and responsible search for truth and meaning (fourth Principle), and to accept one another and encourage one another's spiritual growth (third Principle), we must be open to what we can learn from one another's experiences, as well as from teachings of other peoples and faiths.

Community creates opportunities to learn with others. This session's story illustrates how a rooster learned something about himself and realized his potential through the support and care of his community. At their best, Unitarian Universalist communities challenge members to bring out the best in each other.
