Today we will explore the power of gathering. How we gather together matters and how we maintain and sustain ourselves in community makes a major difference in how we face the world. How can we learn from the precious resource of water in the ability to gather?
This session emphasizes the idea of strengthening community and working cooperatively with other people. While Unitarian Universalists value individual action, we also know that together we are stronger than the sum of our individual parts. Cooperation is a necessary skill for solving problems peacefully and equitably, and is a part of accepting and supporting one another.
