Religious Education Corner

It’s hard to believe that Spring is close at hand and we are approaching the final quarter of our Religious Education program for 2016-2017.

Our theme for RE in 2017-2018 will be “Faith in Action” with an emphasis on the Golden Rule as it is reflected in religions worldwide. We plan to examine diverse cultures and find ways to embrace diverse peoples and backgrounds.

Perhaps one of the best ways to help our students navigate through these goals is through Social Justice projects, meaning activities and curricula that will help students develop a mindset of concern for inequities in wealth, education and privilege.

We’ll be working on projects that empower our children through awareness, advocacy and activism. Ultimately, we should be able to help our youth make connections between Unitarian history, culture, science and economics. Our upper-grade students, of course, will continue on their journey of self-reflection and openness.

Travel plans for our upper-level RE program is expected to shift to an every-other-year basis, with out-of-state travel one year followed by a year of social justice outreach in our own backyard.

Just around the Corner in RE…

2/19/17 - Sandwich Sunday for younger RE children
2/26/17 - Pancake Fundraiser event for YRUU after each service
2/28/17 - Applications for RE Youth Advisor closes
3/19/17 - RE Council meets, location TBA
4/2/17 - Return to traditional curriculum for lower grades (PreK-5) through May 28

In Service,
Julie Miller
Director, Religious Education
