Goals, Session 9: The Gift of Mutual Caring

In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program

This session will:

  • Demonstrate spiritual, emotional and functional ways humans and animals connect
  • Teach that humans are responsible to ensure mutual help, not harm, between humans and animals
  • Introduce a common Unitarian Universalist celebration, the Blessing of the Animals, which comes from the Catholic tradition of St. Francis of Assisi
  • Present animal/human relationships as an aspect of the interdependent web of life (seventh Unitarian Universalist Principle).
