Adult RE Resources
UUA Adult Religious Education Resources
“Come, come, whoever you are, wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving…”
13th century Sufi poet Jalaluddin Rumi (translated and interpreted)
Our Adult RE program draws heavily from the Unitarian Universalist Association Adult Religious Education Resources. Here is a sample of the rich content the UUA makes available for our use.
Tapestry of Faith Multi-Workshop Programs
- Available in full online, programs focus on topics such as leadership, building beloved community, spirituality, Unitarian Universalist history and theology, ethics, and life issues. All are adaptable to a wide variety of schedules and contexts. Most are modular, meaning that you may offer single workshops or a selected short series.
Book and Film Discussion Guides
Guides for books and films are adaptable for use in a single session or a short series.
- Browse discussion guides for books and movies.
- Learn about the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Common Read, a book of spiritual and social justice significance chosen each year for UUs to read together
