  • Justice-Making as Faith Formation from the MidAmerica Region of the UUA
    • From a young age, our children and youth are learning what being a Unitarian Universalist means—not just in theory, but in practice. In this webinar, we will talk with experts in the field of religious education and faith development about how justice-making can be a primary pedagogical tool and spiritual practice for children and youth in our Unitarian Universalist congregations. We will pay special attention to faith formation and identity development for children and youth of color, as well as LGBTQIA+ young people.

Our Whole Lives: Lifespan Sexuality Education

Commonly known as OWL, this is a program designed to give honest, accurate information about sexuality changes in lives. OWL provides information that is developmentally appropriate and includes a wide range of topics. Many UU congregations pair with a United Church of Christ church to offer these programs. The topics that are covered address many issues that parents and children want covered, but that are only briefly touched upon in school. This is a great way to reach out to the community and provide a service that is beneficial to all.
