Center yourself with your personal beliefs and the calling you have found, as a Unitarian Universalist religious education leader, to offer choices for our children. Recall our fourth Principle, "The free and responsible search for truth and meaning." Christianity, at times, brings up strong feelings for some Unitarian Universalists. Take a moment to realize Jesus' ultimate message to the world was love, and we offer love to our children every time we gather. Reflect on the love expressed by some followers of Jesus, including Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mother Teresa. Take those positive thoughts to the gathering today.
