Children understand themselves as "stewards"—that is, people with ability and responsibility to contribute to the care of people and places they love, such as family, friends, their school, the congregation, and the earth we share. Activities encourage participants to see themselves as generous people, with time, talent, and possibly financial resources (treasure) they can share to help take care of the congregation. The ritual for this session is the offertory, and the story is a wisdom tale from Islam about generosity.

This session concludes the Signs of Our Faith program by affirming children's connection to our Unitarian Universalist history and future. They are invited to see themselves as carriers of a UU legacy: of faith in the power of humans to make the world a better place, of hope, and of support for one another in our faith journeys. The story of Antoinette Brown and Olympia Brown reinforces a sense of UU history and encourages children to help one another find the courage to follow one's calling.
