Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Wonderful Welcome: A Program for Children Grades K-1

Spiritual Preparation

Many people choose Unitarian Universalism after rejecting — or being rejected by — the faith community of their childhood. Some people in an interfaith relationship look for a community that embraces and affirms all faith traditions. Think about why you chose Unitarian Universalism. Did you "try" more than one faith community? Were you born into the faith and chose to stay? What role do feelings of acceptance play in your choice?

Think about times when you felt accepted, and when you didn't. How willing have you been to accept others in your faith community? What are your expectations for others to accept you? Bring your most positive and nurturing experiences concerning acceptance in Unitarian Universalism with you to this session.
