FEBRUARY 2019

 RE NEWS

 

On February 10th the youth in our Coming of Age class will lead us in our annual Share the Love Sunday service. This month the class is focused on worship and spirituality. According to the UUA website, “We gather in worship to find meaning and live more deeply. Worship creates connections within, among, and beyond us, calling us to our better selves, calling us to live with wisdom and compassion.”  The youth are exploring what worship and spirituality means to them personally, and how they find expression in UU community. This service will be a chance for all of us to learn from their insights; it will be followed by valentine card-making to share the love.

 

February also marks the second semester in our RE calendar. The children in our Timeless Themes class will be moving into the Christian scriptures, focusing on the teachings and stories of Jesus, as they are told in the Gospels. We are continuing to explore the Six Sources in children’s worship and to ask theological questions in all our classes. Our task in religious education is not to provide the answers to the questions, but to open the space for questions to be asked, to be explored and unpacked together.  Creativity and insight comes through thoughtful conversation. Our teachers and assistants are guides and fellow explorers.; we are learning alongside our children and youth. We hope you will join us on this exciting journey!
