The Joy of Creativity

Some wonderful guests help us explore and enjoy the wonders of creativity, from launching rockets and designing gadgets to making music. Folk duo Anne and Pete Sibley will share their music with us. (Make sure you have some money with you because you will probably want to buy one of their CDs after hearing them!) Veteran Silicon Valley engineer Lee Felsenstein, active in the Homebrew Computer Club back in the day and a speaker at Maker Faire these days, tells some tales. Our own Frank Farris will talk about his upcoming book on connecting mathematics to art. Our “Story for All Ages” is an interview with Thomas Atchison of the Mavericks Civilian Space Program that shows young people how to make and launch their own rockets.

Three- to five-year-olds: The Spiritually Growing Child

Giving Thanks

Mohawk parents have traditionally taught their children to start each day by giving thanks to Mother Earth.  Known as the Thanksgiving Address, this Native American good morning message is based on the belief that the natural world is a precious and rare gift.  The whole universe—from the moon and the stars to the tiniest blade of grass—is addressed as one great family.  Children will hear this good morning message and then give thanks to our beautiful creation by planning seeds and taking them home to watch them grow

Grades 1-4: Unconditional Love, a Gift from Our Universalist Heritage

The law of heaven is love. — Hosea Ballou

In this session, a story about Hosea Ballou (1771-1852), one of the most influential preachers of Universalism, introduces participants to the first Unitarian Universalist Principle, the inherent worth and dignity of every person. The story, "Muddy Children," describes a young Ballou whose father loves him unconditionally despite his tendency to get muddy. Discussion and activities amplify the story's teaching, reassuring participants that they, like Hosea Ballou, are loved and worthy even when they are literally muddy or have made a mistake
