“Seeking Meaning – the Journey”
The Lifespan Religious Education Team is happy to offer preliminary information about our religious education program for next year. After focusing on how we covenant to be with each other through the Seven Principles, and then on the Sources we draw on for inspiration and courage, we are turning toward the individual and community journey toward articulating our own faith: who am I? who are we? how do we connect to each other and the world? We will explore ways to create our own “credo” or statement of belief, and the ways that we as a congregation journey together and support each other in our paths.
For the Children’s Circle, we plan to use curricula with a focus on journeying or welcoming and with a focus on the formation of a loving, supportive community. For the Middle School, we will be using the Lodestone program, which explores big questions such as life and death, Unitarian Universalist values, ethical money usage, and racial justice. We will also be creating a Coming of Age program for interested older middle schoolers. Rev. Connie will be leading a Credo-building workshop for adults and older teens.
Over the next month, we will be sharing more with you and inviting you to share your ideas for this program. Looking forward to many wonderful conversations!
