This Week in Religious Education

What is happening for children, youth, and families at OUUC

Happy Holidays

I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and a lovely holiday season. While this can be a very joyful time, it can also be hard. Please know you can reach out to us here at OUUC for support and community at this, or any other, time. I keep regular office hours on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday 10:30-1:30, but I am also happy to schedule phone calls or meetings at your convenience Saturdays-Thursdays.

And here are a few reflections and resources you might find helpful in crafting meaningful holidays for your family:

New Dream: Simplify the Holidays Campaign

A Free Study Guide (from a Christian lens but applicable to all I think) to Unplug the Christmas Machine

A gratitude workshop for families

Re-Thinking Thanksgiving

A UU Advent Practice
