Kid’s Principles & Sources
Unitarian Universalists have many ways of articulating our seven Principles in simpler language so that they are easy for children to understand. Here is how our Tapestry of Faith children’s program does so:
- We believe that each and every person is important.
- We believe that all people should be treated fairly and kindly.
- We believe that we should accept one another and keep learning together.
- We believe that each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life.
- We believe that all persons should have a vote about the things that concern them.
- We believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world.
- We believe in caring for our planet, the home we share with all living things.
Unitarian Universalists find inspiration from six sources. The stories and lessons we offer in religious education are drawn from these foundations of our faith:
- the sense of wonder we all share.
- women and men long ago and today — people whose lives remind us to be kind and fair.
- the ethical and spiritual wisdom of the world’s religious.
- Christian and Jewish teachings which tell us to love all others as we love ourselves.
- the use of reason and the discoveries of science.
- the harmony of nature and the sacred circle of life.
