This session encourages our children to care for the earth and helps them understand that our actions affect every living thing on our planet, including ourselves. The session theme is "We are connected to the earth in love."

When we show love for our planet by advocating protection of animal habitats or trees, we are living our seventh Unitarian Universalist Principle.

This session engages children to experience how and why their behavior choices matter.

In role play and discussion, avoid judgment of a person when talking about unwise behavior. People are not "bad," though behavior can be. Affirm positive behavior choices.

This session reinforces our sixth Principle, "We believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world." Children explore ways to ensure everyone has the basic human needs of clothing, food, shelter, and love. Beginning with the beloved communities in their lives, participants explore what it means to work toward a peaceful, fair and free world. They gain confidence in their ability to make a difference in the world as Unitarian Universalists acting on our sixth Principle.

The theme of this session is "This is a place where you are loved and your opinions matter." The children learn that UU congregations intentionally make space for everyone's point of view on matters concerning the congregation as well as on issues that affect the community and the whole world. The story, based on a Sioux legend, presents a way to assure everyone is heard in a group conversation. Participants make individual talking sticks to use in this group and at home. They think about loving and respecting all people that they encounter.

The theme of this session is "Our search for beliefs comes from sources of love." Children learn that Unitarian Universalists have the freedom to build our own theology; we affirm our UU Principles, yet we are not required to believe any one thing.

The session focuses on the third Principle, "Everyone is accepted with love and compassion in our congregation." One of the unique characteristics of Unitarian Universalism is the diversity of beliefs within our congregations. We strive to make everyone feel welcome and accepted regardless of their beliefs. The children will learn and demonstrate acceptance and compassion to everyone through story, art, games, and meditation.

This session explores how every friendship is surrounded in love. To make a friend is to discover ways we are alike. To meet new people and look first for how we are alike, rather than different, can be a challenge.

Whenever we are in relationship with others, we have an opportunity to affirm the inherent worth and dignity of each person and to better understand ourselves.
