The second principle of Unitarian Universalism in is Justice, equity and compassion in human relations. That’s the adult language. In kid language, we say Be kind in all you do. It is interesting to think about how the key ingredients of kindness might be justice, equity, and compassion. Do you agree?

How do you practice kindness? How do you talk about kindness as a family?

This month, we invite you to think about how to cultivate more kindness by creating a family covenant, making gifts and offering service for others, and practicing loving kindness in meditation. The care package songs for this month are Magic Penny and How Could Anyone Ever Tell You?

Here are some questions to explore as a family: 

  • What is the kindest thing anyone has ever done for you?
  • What act of kindness have you done for others recently?
  • What acts of kindness do you want to commit to doing as a family?
  • What can you do to help remind yourself to be kind?
  • How can you treat yourself with kindness?
