Youth Religious Education

The UUCOV Youth Religious Education (YRE) program
grounds itself in The Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism:

Each person is important

Be kind in all you do

We’re free to learn together

We search for what is true

All people have a voice

Build a fair and peaceful world

We care for planet Earth

Inclusivity

We welcome all persons, regardless of:

  • race, ethnicity, national origin;
  • gender or gender identification, affectional preference or sexual orientation;
  • age, physical or mental challenge;
  • social, economic, or marital status.

pebblesA Connection to War Torn Syria
As was noted last month, YRE has some new volunteers. One of them is Olga Hebert. Olga recently showed our older children (The Faith Group) a YouTube video when she worked with them on a lesson titled “The Power of Reaching Out.” You can see it, too; here is a link to the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmoPKZHdVVo The video itself was a powerful lesson in taping into one's gifts to inform and educate beyond the border of one's country.

Olga went one step further and brought materials for the YRE children to experience the type of art Nizar Ali Badr creates. The photos in the collage (below) are the works created by our children.
Thank you Olga!
