This Week in Religious Education
What is happening for children, youth, and families at OUUC
This year's Sources
Unitarian Universalism has Six Sources that we draw upon for our living tradition, and in our religious education program we focus on two of those sources a year in a cycle. We have grouped Prophetic People and Jewish and Christian Teachings together, then Direct Experience and World Religions, and finally Humanist teachings and Earth-centered Traditions together. This year we are focusing on Prophetic People and Jewish and Christian teachings, and this month we are learning what "prophetic" means and about people from UU history and how they were prophetic people.
This Sunday the children will be learning about William Ellery Channing.
For youth this Sunday:
- Middle School youth will be reviewing their understanding of UUism as the foundation for the Neighboring Faiths program that will have them visiting other faiths. Meeting at 11:00 in the youth room.
- High School Youth will have lunch and their Soul Matters small group at 12:30
Sunday and Every Day: Taking It Home
We introduced a new theme last Sunday: Prophetic People. Discuss it at home:
- What does "prophetic" mean? Can you think of an example of a prophetic person?
- Play the family conversation game from Sunday's chapel: https://childrenschalice.wordpress.com/2018/10/09/family-conversation-game/
