What's New: Religious Education and Faith Development

Reclaiming Prophetic Witness (Skinner House, 2012) has been announced as the 2014-15 UUA Common Read. Author Paul Rasor is director of the Center for the Study of Relgious Freedom and a professor of religious studies at Virginia Wesleyan University. A Common Read may be the ideal adult faith development program for your congregation. Read why and how to start a Common Read.

Unitarian Universalist (UU) Girl Scouts in grades 4-12 now have a religious recognition program they can access online, at no charge, in a user-friendly, interactive format. Religion in Life includes a version for younger girls and one for older girls, plus a user guide for Girl Scout leaders, religious professionals, and parents. Many choices of activities and projects invite girls to express, explore, and think about ways to live their UU Principles and Girl Scout values. 

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