At WBUUC, we say we “Grow our souls and serve the world.” This means that we are intentional about seeking out and learning from stories, people, and experiences– and that we then do our best to live these learnings each and every day.

The stories that we shared this week challenged us to think about just that– noticing injustice in the world, learning about it, and then working together for change.
Guiding Questions for children:
- What is your faith calling you to do?
- Who or what gives you the strength to do the right thing even when it’s hard?
Our teens talked about Dr. King and about how his faith guided his work. We wondered about our faith guides our work in the world.
Guiding Questions for Youth:
- Do you feel that Unitarian Universalism helps you to fight for what is right or work to make the world a better place? Why or why not?
- Have there been times when your faith community has helped or encouraged you to do the right thing?
- Do you consider yourself to be a person of faith? Why or why not?
Growing and Serving is a lifelong charge– what stories have helped you to grow your soul? What gives you the strength to serve the world?
