In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program
Children who understand covenanting in terms of safety and learning and playing together can gain a deeper understanding of covenant when they hear why adults need covenants, too.
Prepare the children by eliciting their questions about what kinds of covenants adults make with one another or with children. Prompt them by suggesting contexts such as family, work, congregational life or sports where adults are in community.
When visitors arrive, guide a conversation to explore your congregational covenant — how it was made, why it is important. If your congregation does not have a covenant, facilitate conversation about the Unitarian Universalist Principles. Adults may also like to talk about their personal experiences with covenanting.
