RELIGIOUS EXPLORATION

Children’s Religious Exploration Program

 

Religious Exploration classes are offered for children (preschool through 12th grade) during Sunday worship services.  Children join the congregation for the beginning of the service for about 15 minutes, before going to RE classes. We’re currently using Tapestry of Faith, which is a collection of curricula and resources that nurture Unitarian Universalist identity, spiritual growth, a transforming faith, and vital communities of justice and love.

 

Highlights of 2018-19 included carol singing at the Sunset Nursing Home, the Christmas Nativity Pageant, dyeing Easter eggs, and cooking a soup for one of the 2nd Sunday Potluck and Fun events.

 

Our safety policy stipulates that two adults (unless they are the parents of the children) are always present during RE activities and in the nursery.

The RE program welcomes volunteers to assist with the programming.

 

Adult Religious Exploration Program

 

The adult RE program participated in the Common Read program that the UUA sponsored for 2017-2018, involving two books:

 

Centering: Navigating Race, Authenticity, and Power in Ministry, edited by Mitra Rahnema (Skinner House, 2017). This book presents “the stories, analysis, and insights of a number of Unitarian Universalist religious leaders of color as they explore how racial identity is made both visible and invisible in Unitarian Universalist communities.”

 

Daring Democracy: Igniting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Want, by Frances Moore Lappé and Adam Eichen, (Beacon Press, September 2017). This book “lifts up the importance of democracy itself. It examines the anti-democracy movement that led to the Trump presidency, then offers a vision and call to action to save the democracy we thought we had and to take our civic life to a place it has never been.”
