Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Love Surrounds Us: A Program on the UU Principles and Beloved Community for Grades K-1

Spiritual Preparation

It can be easy to take our earth for granted. We would rather not think about the fact that if the earth is destroyed, we are also destroyed. Think about the things you do each day to help protect the earth. Do you recycle? Do you turn off electronic devices? Do you use daylight rather than lamps when possible? Are there things that you do that damage the environment? Take a few moments to reflect on the things you do for the environment and what things you could do to better protect the environment.

How can you help the children better understand the impact of their actions on the environment? In what ways can you help them understand that the earth is essential to our own survival? Make yourself ready to help participants discover their responsibility to care for our earth.
