Making a Difference

This session introduces the concept of responsibility. It reinforces the ideas in the seventh Unitarian Universalist Principle, respect for the interdependent web of all existence, by demonstrating the idea that our action or lack of action makes a difference in an interdependent world. It encourages the children to feel empowered to take action when love, faith and conscience call. During the session the children explore the concept and experience of responsibility through acknowledging ways that they already make a difference, considering through role play how to make a difference in real life scenarios, and brainstorming problems that matter to them, and how even small actions on their part promote positive change. Responsibility is added to the Moral Compass.

 

Take Home:

Today we explored ways that responsibility is woven into the interdependent world.

Family Activity: Weave a basket together while focusing on ways that each of our actions in weaving affect the basket.

Take a Walk: Take a walk and explore nature. How do our UU values and principles fit into the direct experience of nature?
