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. What are your memories of Halloween as a young child? Were there houses you would not approach because they were too scary? Were you attracted, or repelled, by the decor and costumes? Were cherry bombs and screams something to grin at or cry about? How did the older people around you act? Did they push you to participate, or guide your attention to other things? Recall how the older people around you contributed to your fears or soothed them. Bring that reflection to your own work with the children in this session.
