Unitarian Universalist religious education grows and strengthens connection to our UU history, rituals, values, and community. It is the nurturance and development of one’s own religious self as we explore and honor our UU principles and sources. It empowers us to think critically to discern our personal beliefs and live our values.
Religious education is not just learned, but lived. Religious education happens through active participation in our Unitarian Universalist rituals, worship, and celebrations at home and at church. Religious education happens when we hear our stories over and over, explore religious ideas together, and are challenged to reflect thoughtfully on religious meaning. Religious education is seeing and living our values in action. Religious education happens when people in our church listen, value, and encourage us toward our better selves.
