Bay Area UU Chruch Religious Education - May 29, 2020
Today's story is narrated by Alison Crawfor. It is a story from Signes of Our Faith curriculum. In this lesson we are learning about rituals and the story helps us remember that some rituals are actions that hold special meaning. Answer these questions after you listen to 'Abby's Birthday'. What were some rituals in the story? Were there any rituals in the story that you have done yourself? [For example, saying "Good morning," singing "Happy Birthday," blowing out candles, giving cards and gifts, lighting a chalice.] What do the candles on the birthday cake represent? Why did Kamal and Sherry light a chalice when they got home? Was it because it was dark and they needed light, or was there another reason?

By the end of the story, her classmates become her friends as they realize her differences make her all the more interesting. As you watch the story, please think about these questions: What does "odd" mean? Do you think it is nice to call someone "odd?" Why or why not? Have you ever been a new person somewhere? How did that feel? When you were the "new person" did anyone do something to make you feel welcome? What did they do?
