Religious Education Corner

10 September 2017

Our theme for Religious Education in 2017-2018 is “Faith in Action” with an emphasis on the Golden Rule as it is reflected in the world's religions. We are examing diverse cultures to find ways to embrace people from all backgrounds.

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

We are working on projects that empower our children through awareness, advocacy and activism. Ultimately, we will 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.

In Service,
Julie Miller
Director, Religious Education
