Tapestry of Faith: World of Wonder: A Program on the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism for Grades K-1

Spiritual Preparation

Part of World of Wonder

Find a place where you can be quiet with your thoughts. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for several minutes, perhaps repeating a word or phrase to separate yourself from the activities of the day. When you feel settled and relaxed, consider:

  • Is there a tree that is special to you, either now or in the past?
  • In what ways are you spiritually nourished by that connection?
  • In what other ways are you connected to trees?
  • In what ways are you caring for trees in your everyday actions?

Allow your own sense of reverence, wonder, and awe to be present as you lead this session.
