Children’s Version of the Seven Principles
Unitarian Universalists have many ways of articulating our Seven Principles in simpler language. Here’s the way our Tapestry of Faith children’s programs describe them:
- We believe that each and every person is important.
- We believe that all people should be treated fairly and kindly.
- We believe that we should accept one another and keep on learning together.
- We believe that each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life.
- We believe that all persons should have a vote about the things that concern them.
- We believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world.
- We believe in caring for our planet Earth, the home we share with all living things.
Here are our principles, expressed using the colors of the rainbow:
Red: Respect all beings
Orange: Offer fair and kind treatment
Yellow: Yearn to learn
Green: Grow in spirit and mind
Blue: Believe in your ideas and act on them
Indigo: Insist on peace, freedom, and justice
Violet: Value the connections in all creation
