In "Heeding the Call," a Tapestry of Faith program
The sharing of joy, whether physical, emotional, psychic, or intellectual, forms a bridge between the sharers which can be the basis for understanding much of what is not shared between them, and lessens the threat of their difference. — Audre Lorde
In Today's Workshop...
We explored the importance of joy and laughter and play in healing and nurturing our world. After all, how can there be justice if the children are not laughing? We learned about Sarah Foster, a lifelong Unitarian Universalist and a professional clown who has performed for children in Haiti, Swaziland, and South Africa. We worked together to create a joyful mural and talked about the health benefits of laughter. We discussed whether we considered the right to joy, happiness, and laughter a human right and basic need.
