Introduction, Session 4: Balance in Our Ecosystem

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

Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life—learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some. — Robert Fulghum, author and Unitarian Universalist minister

The interdependent web of existence has evolved over millions of years to include extraordinary diversity of life. The long-term sustainability of each and all depends on balance. In Unitarian Universalism—an ecologically—minded religion—living in balance with all Earth becomes a critical spiritual practice.

This session uses role play to demonstrate how balance can be maintained in a large, interdependent system and suggest the effects of imbalance. The central story, a Nigerian folk tale, shows the consequences of not living in balance with nature and encourages children to consume less and conserve more.
