Spirit Play will learn a Yoruba creation myth. In the story, Obatala, a heavenly being, isn’t content in his heavenly abode, and so he creates a chain of gold on which to descend down to earth and create the world.

UU Explorers will look at the value of integrity and use a compass to symbolize integrity. We define as our inner moral compass a quality of Unitarian Universalist faith. We will discuss how we listen to our inner voices and what it feels like when our moral compass swings toward truth. We will emphasize that to discern what is right is often not easy.

Breakfast Club will meet in the library.

Nursery Care will be provided.

 

What’s very important to me is when Dumbledore says that you have to choose between what is right and what is easy. This is the setup for the next three books. All of them are going to have to choose, because what is easy is often not right. — J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books, in Conversations with J.K. Rowling by Lindsay Fraser
