Spirit Play has been learning about different creation stories from around the world. Last week they learned a Hindu creation story in which Lord Brahma became lonely. He split himself in two and became male and female. Then he became one again. He then split himself in two again, breathed and from his breath created men and women. He created grass, flowers, trees and plants of all kinds. Next he created all the animals and insects that live on the land from parts of his body. From other parts of himself he made birds to fly in the air and fish to swim in the sea. To all these creatures he gave feeling and the senses of touch and smell. He gave them power to see, hear and move. The world was soon bristling with life and the air was filled with the sounds of Brahma’s creation. Everything comes from one – Lord Brahma, who is part of the Supreme One – so everything is part of the Supreme One.

UU Explorers have been exploring what it means to “seek the truth in love.” This week they will learn about how sometimes truth can be very challenging. The children will play with discerning truth from lies in a game, and express the “tied together” theme of this program by weaving a God’s Eye, a traditional craft of indigenous people of the Americas, to embody the “tied together” theme of this program with an emblem of true seeing.

Breakfast Club will meet in the library.

Nursery Care will be provided.
