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. How do you observe the weather? Are you likely to casually glance out a window or more likely to monitor weather on a radio station or website? What are the main types of weather in your area? How do windy, rainy, stormy, and clear days make you feel? When is weather a humdrum, background element of your day; when do you experience weather as a miracle of our earth? Imagine weather as a wondrous event, brought to us by the marvel of our blue-green planet, each day. Imagine weather—all kinds—as something to be grateful for. Consider the weather in all its forms, as if you were an astronaut orbiting the earth, watching the clouds over the continents, waiting to feel the sun on your face again after the cold darkness of space. Bring that mindfulness of the wonder of weather to the children.
