Introduction, Session 3: Thanks Be for Trees!

In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program

No shade tree? Blame not the sun but yourself. — Chinese proverb

This session focuses on the vital role trees play in our ecosystems, as imaginatively told in a story about a young girl in India (based on the Chipko—or "tree-hugging" —movement in India). Children will physically embody a tree in an activity that teaches the purpose of each part of a tree. A guided meditation promotes a spiritual connection with the life cycle of a tree.
