Storysharing: Getting to Know Ourselves, Each Other, and the World

Stories are powerful ways of sharing experiences that are bigger than rational explanations, getting to know the lives of friends and strangers, connecting with each other’s similarities and differences, inspiring us to compassion and social responsibility, exemplifying our UU principles, and probing our multi-faceted sources. This year children and youth will participate in religious education curricula that are grounded in story and integrated into our monthly Soul Matters worship themes. This means that each month’s theme will be explored by adults in the church service and by children and youth in our RE rooms. Director of Religious Education Erin Reid will offer a preview of this year’s children and youth religious education program, and describe opportunities for exciting multigenerational collaborations among Worship, Music, Adult RE, Social Justice, and more.
