Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Love Will Guide Us: A Program for Grades 2-3 that Applies the Wisdom of the Six Sources to the Big Questions

Spiritual Preparation

Light a candle or chalice. Sit comfortably and pay attention to your breathing. Allow your body to relax. Take a few minutes to ponder the following questions, without judgment or criticism—imagine yourself looking back as an impartial observer.

  • Have you ever experienced injustice? Did you take action? Did anyone else get involved, as an ally to you?
  • Think of a time when you have witnessed injustice. Did you take action? What happened? If you did not act, what stopped you?

Bring your thoughts back to the present and return your awareness to your breathing. As you breathe in, breathe in love. As you breathe out, breathe out forgiveness. Continue this focus on your breathing until you feel at peace with the past and calm in your spirit.
