Preschool & rising Kindergartners: We Are Many, We Are One

 

We Are Many, We Are One is an anti-bias, multicultural education program that offers 3-6 years olds grounding in religious community and tradition.  Along with the freedom to discover and express their individual uniqueness, young children will learn about the different people who make up the big world around them.

 

Rising Grades 1-4 & 5-8: UU Jedi Academy 

 

 Jedi are the guardians of peace in the galaxy.

Jedi use their powers to defend and to protect.

Jedi respect all life, in any form.

Jedi serve others rather than ruling over them, for the good of the galaxy.

Jedi seek to improve themselves through knowledge and training.

The Star Wars saga offers far more than mere fantasy. As “modern mythology,” these stories of substance that have the ability to speak to a modern audience in ways that more traditional sources cannot.  This Jedi Academy will offer padawans (students) an opportunity to develop practical spiritual skills.

In addition to their Jedi Academy class, students will enjoy a light saber class June 7th, meeting with Big and Little BUUddies throughout the summer and participate in a social justice project.   Note: No class July 5th.

Rising Grades 9-12: Dr. Who UU

 

The high school class will examine Unitarian Universalism through episodes of the popular TV show, Dr. Who.  Teens will deepen their understanding of Unitarian Universalism, examine their beliefs, and look at various social justice topics. Themes will range from the search for truth and meaning, to the impact of faith and fear, to caring for all beings.

The Future of Religion?

Many people have espoused the idea that Unitarianism (now Unitarian Universalism) is (or should be) "the religion of the future". The most famous proponent of this idea, Thomas Jefferson, is said to have stated his expectation that Unitarianism would become the universal American religion in his own lifetime. Yet, this obviously hasn't happened. So why does Unitarian Universalism have so few followers, and what must we do to fulfill our promise? This service explores some possible answers to the first question and offers suggestions about the second.
