In "Gather the Spirit," a Tapestry of Faith program
Tell the group that Pete Seeger is a Unitarian Universalist who has said he attends a Unitarian Universalist congregation partly because he likes to sing there. He is a powerful voice for justice in our world, and an example of how we can be stewards to the world's water resources and have a good time doing it.
Read or tell the story. Lead a discussion to process the story with questions and ideas like these:
Leader notes to share as appropriate: The concept of "being called" can be difficult for young people to grasp—perhaps because it sounds so much like being called to the dinner table or the phone. Some people might say that being called to something serious such as social action or becoming a minister is having a feeling deep inside that a certain action must be taken. And some people might explain being called in a religious or spiritual way. Ask the group what they think being "called" means and discuss as necessary.
