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

Spiritual Preparation

Members of our congregations may be in a continual search for what is right and true for themselves. You may have been on a spiritual journey for many years or are new to developing your own religious values. Think about how you might respond if a child asks you about your own beliefs. Will you be comfortable answering questions? Would you like to be able to articulate your faith in just a few words or sentences?

Think about your current values and beliefs. What faith traditions have the most influence on them? Now reflect on the participants and how this may be the first time they will be asked to think about their personal beliefs. In what ways can you help them find what is symbolic of their own faith? Relax and make yourself ready to help the children begin their lifelong spiritual journey.
