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

Spiritual Preparation

We are all unique. As adults, it is often an advantage to stand out because of our differences in abilities or skills. As a leader, you will demonstrate to participants that we should all be proud of ourselves and be accepting of others.

Relax into a comfortable position and close your eyes. Think about what makes you unique as an adult. What made you unique as a child? Are you or were you proud of those differences? Why or why not?

Now reflect on the children in this group and how they may see their differences. Consider how they show acceptance of one another. How can you as a leader help make this session a positive experience for the participants? Celebrate the differences in the group and take these positive thoughts into the session.
