What's New: Religious Education and Faith Development

New OWL webinar session added! A free, 90-minute webinar from the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ orients you to new material on bullying, social media, and other topics in the forthcoming 2nd edition of OWL for Grades 7-9. The session on Wed. Oct. 1 at 8 pm Eastern may still have room. Register by email to religiouseducation@uua.org or plan to view a recording of this webinar online, later in October. Pre-order the new edition from the UUA Bookstore website or at 800-215-9076.

Preschool Religious Education programs can now begin to use the new, 2nd edition of the Chalice Children curriculum by Katie Covey. While we complete publication of Chalice Children as an online Tapestry of Faith program, please use the Draft Preview version of the Introduction and first four sessions, posted as PDF file and Word document (both 127 pages).

Calling all Girl Scouts! A new Unitarian Universalist (UU) religious recognition program is available online in a user-friendly, interactive format. Religion in Life includes versions for younger and older girls and a guide for Girl Scout leaders, religious professionals, and parents. Activities and projects invite grade 4 through 12 girls to explore intersections of UU Principles and Girl Scout values. 

Reclaiming Prophetic Witness (Skinner House, 2012) is the 2014-15 UUA Common Read. A Discussion Guide will be available free, online in October. A Common Read may be the ideal adult faith development program for your congregation. Read why and how to do this year's Common Read. Book author Paul Rasor is director of the Center for the Study of Relgious Freedom and a professor of religious studies at Virginia Wesleyan University.

Encounter rocks and nurture a sense of wonder and awe in your family or your faith home. Browse the Fall 2014 UU World Families pages for activity ideas and read Kari Kopnick's blog post, "A Rock, the Earth, the Universe, and a Child's Biggest Questions."

Exploring military ministry can be a structured, engaging process for your Unitarian Universalist (UU) community with a NEW, free, six-workshop adult religious education (RE) curriculum: The Military Ministry Toolkit for Congregations (PDF) and companion 23-minute video. 

If you missed General Assembly, catch up with a recording of the Faith Development Office webinar "Live! from Providence, RI: What's at GA 2014 for Religious Educators?" Visit our webinar archives.

Virtual gatherings for UUs of Color are convened monthly, online, by Jessica York, UUA Faith Development Director, and emerging lay leaders. Adults, young adults, and youth of Color are invited to create community within our faith. Email youthprograms@uua.org for more information.
