In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program
Think about your spiritual upbringing. Did you grow up in Unitarian Universalism? Do you have another religious background? Think about the first time you learned about a covenant. Was it in a religious context, or a setting outside your faith community? Think about how you understood the concept and what it meant to you.
Most children understand, but may not have articulated, that entering into an agreement with others is essential for playing together. As adults, we know that entering into an agreement with others allows us to function in community at work, at home, in congregational life, and at play. Reflect with appreciation on how entering into a covenant creates a safe and productive space for yourself and any community you are part of. Share this understanding and positive energy with the children today.
