Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Windows and Mirrors: A Program about Diversity for Grades 4-5

Leader Resource 1: Faith Heritage Letter to Parents

Adapt and distribute to parents at least two weeks before leading this session.

Dear Parents of the Windows and Mirrors Group,

On (date), please make sure your child brings knowledge of their faith heritage to the session. The group will explore the diversity of faith heritages and beliefs represented in our Unitarian Universalist community. We will explore our own individual beliefs and examine where we learned or how we discovered them. We will share about the faith heritage of our families.

Children may also want to bring a photo or other image from home that says something about your family's faith heritage. In an art project, they will represent their faith heritage and/or beliefs with one or more faith symbols. Symbols of Unitarian Universalism, Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Buddhism will be provided. If another faith heritage is important in your family, or a particular faith symbol is meaningful for your family, please send an appropriate image with your child to this session.

Thank you,

(Co-leaders names and contact information)
