"Stories in Faith ushers you into a world of peddlers and fairy queens, bulrushes and donkeys—as real and as mysterious as the stars. As a lover of stories, that would be enough for me. But there's much more —historical context, connections to our Principles and Sources, plus creative activities for congregations and families." —Jessica York, Youth Programs Director, Unitarian Universalist Association
"With sensitivity and care, Forsyth-Vail interprets stories from around the world that bring our religious values and aspirations to life. Adults will be engaged and children delighted by this easy-to-use and beautifully written volume." —Rev. Manish K. Mishra, Minister, Unitarian Universalist Church of Saint Petersburg, Florida
"Integrity, multiculturalism and Unitarian Universalism all wrapped up in one. Wow! We all have been waiting for this resource. Stories in Faith is a must-read for religious educators, ministers, teachers and parents." —Lisa Rubin, Director of Religious Education, First Parish in Bedford, Massachusetts
Stories in Faith is an invitation to begin a unique spiritual journey, one in which stories help us to develop our faith and make meaning in our lives. This is a distinctly Unitarian Universalist collection of wisdom tales. Nineteen in all, the stories are culled from many cultures and traditions and presented using the seven Principles and six Sources as a framework for reflection and further exploration. Forsyth-Vail offers thoughtful advice for respectfully approaching materials from a culture other than one's own and encourages engagement with wisdom tales as an opportunity for lifelong inspiration and spiritual growth.
