Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Riddle and Mystery: A Program on the Big Questions for Grade 6

Spiritual Preparation

Reflect upon Today's Big Question: "Does God exist?" Be comfortable with your own current ideas about God. Know that you need not share your deep inner thoughts with your group, but that doing so is appropriate as long as youth are not led to think they should move toward your position. Remember that sixth graders are young, and that some may need more concrete beliefs and God images than do many UU adults. Reflect back on what you thought as a youth, and consider how your ideas have changed through the years.

With everything set to go, carve out a meditative moment for yourself. Relax. Take several deep breaths. Smile in the knowledge that simply joining your youth in their search of life's mysteries is good and rewarding.
