This session introduces and encourages the virtue of courage, and defines it as the ability to stand up for what we believe is right despite our fears. It also relates to the sixth Unitarian Universalist Principle — the goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all — as it calls the children to find the courage to work toward this goal. The children will then be guided to remember times when they have found the courage to do something risky. “Courage” will be added to the Moral Compass.
Today we added “Courage” to the moral compass by exploring ways that courage helps us strive for justice despite our fears.
Play a Game: Play a game of risk to show how courage can be fun and to demonstrate the difference between soft risks and tough risks.
Read a Story: What is a story that speaks to courage? What are ways to use the lessons from the story in everyday life?
