Welcome back to the 2021 summer family ministry series, A Pocketful of Principles! This is a self-paced optional program to help all of us, from children through youth and adults, to delve more deeply into our Unitarian Universalist Principles. Have a conversation over the dinner table after you view a video or listen to a song, and share your thoughts about how you might incorporate living into each principle in your own life and in the life of the congregation.
Look through each page on your own time. We will be sending out one reminder a week, a new principle each week for the months of July and August. Enjoy thinking more deeply about each of our principles this summer! Take a look at our home page: https://uucolumbia.net/uucc-summer2021/.
This Sunday, we introduce our 8th principle: I join you as we build the Beloved Community, free of racism and oppression. How do you talk about injustice and oppression in your family? At work? In your community? What are you doing to help end racism and marginalization of people?
In faith and with love,
Robin Slaw, Director of Religious Education
Respect the worth and dignity of each person.
Offer fairness and kindness to one another.
You and I grow wiser and brighter together.
Goodness and curiosity guide our search for truth.
By listening deeply and deciding together, we make better choices.
I join you as we work for peace, freedom and justice,
Value and care for the web of life that connects us to all,
and Build the Beloved Community, free of racism and oppression.
A Pocketful of Principles is built from materials developed originally by Lauren Wyeth, the Religious Educator at First Universalist Church at Minneapolis.
