Spiritual Preparation, Session 1: Looking In/looking Out

In "Windows and Mirrors," a Tapestry of Faith program

Find a place where you can be quiet with your thoughts. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for about five minutes, perhaps repeating a word or phrase to separate yourself from the activities of the day. When you feel settled and relaxed, consider:

  • We choose when and how and where to look at the world around us. Think about your own ways of looking—both literally seeing and figuratively paying attention. Where do you look and where don't you look? When do you choose to look carefully? How do you frame what you see?
  • How do you look inward? How does your view into yourself affect how you observe the world?
  • How do your ways of looking in and looking out reflect your Unitarian Universalist faith? Think about how this awareness might inform your leadership of the group today.
