This program is an opportunity for families to explore our UU Principles (or Promises, as we refer to them with children), including our proposed new 8th Principle of dismantling white supremacy.
- Development and expression of a strong Unitarian Universalist identity
- Families and children connect through art and writing rather than on-line gatherings
How it Works:
Practicing our Promises Boxes will be delivered and picked up by RE staff. Each box contains a Spirit Play story basket, wondering questions, crafts/activities, and a social justice project. Videos of familiar teachers telling the stories will be made available online. Families will be invited to contribute to collective craft projects and journals that travel with the baskets to create family to family connections.
Boxes will be delivered in the week of September 9 and rotated from home to home every two weeks thereafter. Each family will have two weeks with each box. Plastics will be kept to a minimum to reduce the risk of spreading disease. Families may also choose to quarantine the box upon arrival at their home before using the materials.
For questions about this program, please contact Reverend Emily Manvel Leite or Stephanie Kimball
