Introduction, Workshop 7: Gather in Thanks

In "Gather the Spirit," a Tapestry of Faith program

The natural response to genuinely-felt gratitude is generosity. — Rev. William Metzger, UU Minister, from a sermon, "Gratitude and Generosity," delivered at First Unitarian Church, Philadelphia , March 4, 2007

This workshop helps participants connect the concepts of gratitude and generosity. Participants offer thanks for something much of our Western society takes for granted, abundant clean water. They explore how Unitarian Universalist Principles call us to conserve water and to take action to ensure access to clean water for all life that shares our planet. This workshop has a low-key, thoughtful feeling. If you feel the need for a more active approach, consider the Alternate Activities. Alternate Activity 1, Water Drop Competition, nicely complements Activity 4, Spiritual Circle of Thanks, while Alternate Activity 2, Boat Float Competition, could substitute for Activity 4.
