Tapestry of Faith: Chalice Children: A Program about Our Unitarian Universalist Community for Preschoolers

Spiritual Preparation

Take time before the session and find a quiet place for reflection. Imagine the world of the preschool child. They often like to be "big" and help with the chores and functions of their family—pushing the stroller by themselves, gathering dishes for a meal, helping with the vacuum, etc. Imagine their delight when they prepare a snack and serve it with pride to their families in this session. They are playing host, and that is a big responsibility! It is the same pride and responsibility we feel when someone comes to visit our home, to be welcomed and to understand how we have chosen to live. Hopefully, our guests admire our choices, and we feel understood and loved. Take time to reflect how important it is to feel affirmed in our choices and to be admired and loved by people important to us. Bring that reflection to your morning with the preschoolers.
