Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Love Connects Us: A Program on Living in Unitarian Universalist Covenant for Grades 4-5

Spiritual Preparation

Find a place where you can be quiet with your thoughts. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for about five minutes, perhaps repeating a word or phrase to separate yourself from the activities of the day. When you feel settled and relaxed, think about the prophetic minds who have inspired you. What are some sources you turn to when you need inspiration or are faced with a difficult decision? How do these sources inspire you? In what ways do your choices reflect your Unitarian Universalist faith?

Keep these thoughts in mind as you lead this session and explore of using peace to seek peace, the heritage that which Henry David Thoreau and the Transcendentalists passed to us and the wider world.
