Soul Matters Family Practice (March): Wisdom

Consider adding some Creation Myths to your story time routine. One benefit of our UU Tradition is that we pool from many lineages to craft our narrative about important questions: Who are we? Where did we come from? Where have we gone astray? How we do make it right? What is our purpose here on Earth?

A few great resources are Four Corners of the Sky: Creation Stories and Cosmologies from Around the World by Steve Zeitlin or the beautiful In the Beginning: Creation Myths from Around the World by Carolyn North and Adrienne Robinson. After you’ve sifted through several you like, you might even try penning one with your own family, selecting the forces that speak to you and crafting a story of your lineage.
