Belonging Week 4: Celebrating Awe and Interconnectedness

Throughout our abundant lives, we can find simple and quick ways to connect our learning and growth at church to our lives at home.

At Church:

We are beginning to understand how everything belongs to each other and how our UU 7th principle helps us understand we are all connected.

Morning Time:

Consider: “And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair” ― Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

Drive Time:

Listen to: Phillip Phillips – Home

Meal Time: 

Talk about: What group of animals would you most want to belong to: a herd of sheep? a pack of wolves? a flock of birds? a herd of elephants? a colony of ants, or bees? a pod of dolphins? or another? Do they have anything in common with us? How are we connected?

Bed Time:

Read: The Earth Book, You are Stardust, The Everything Seed 

Family Time:

Watch: Earthrise

Don’t just watch it; turn it into a spiritual exercise by watching it after the sun has gone down and talking a walk afterward. Think of it as a “night walk meditation” and use it to deepen your experience of watching the film. Let the video and night walk take you where it will. Come back ready to share the one moment from the film or from your walk that affected you most deeply.
