Goals (Windows and Mirrors)

This program will:

  • Present Unitarian Universalism as a faith that is lived out through identifying and acting on responsibility toward one another
  • Introduce the reality and the impact of multiple perspectives and multiple experiences as we live in this world
  • Use the metaphor of a window and a mirror to help children better understand themselves in relation to others
  • Present the windows and mirrors metaphor as an effective tool for understanding and living our Unitarian Universalist Principles
  • Guide children to identify and respect their own values, views and needs as well as those of others in a variety of contexts; teach that to do so is a faith practice
  • Provide children with practice in observation, interpretation and critical thinking
  • Develop children's empathy, open-mindedness and respect for differences, seen and unseen.
