World Religions for UUs + Friends

For the 2020-2021 academic year, Amy leads both the children and the adults in her UU fellowship through a UU-inspired World Religions curriculum. All are invited to participate.

Please note, that these classes are taught through the framework of Unitarian Universalism and are distinct from the courses focusing on World Religions already available through the Institute. For example, the Understanding World Religions for Birth and Death Doulas and World Religions for Children are not taught through a specific UU lens.

However, the UU lens is an open minded/open hearted one ~ one open to interfaith families, LGBTQ individuals/families, people of all faith backgrounds, and agnostics/atheists/humanists. So….if you’d like to join in Amy’s UU-based offerings ~ you are welcome!

Adult learners gather with Amy via Zoom on the last Sunday of each month from 2-3pm EST.

The calendar of study for the 2020-2021 year follows:

September ~ Unitarian Universalism
October ~ Zoroastrianism
November ~ Judaism
December ~ Christianity
January ~ Islam
February ~ Hinduism
March ~ Buddhism
April ~ Taoism
May ~ Unitarian Universalism

Patience 


Hope is all brightness
as we gaze upon
the precipice
Not casting our eyes,
downward,
but filling our lungs eagerly
with the fresh air
of a new day,
our souls in winged orbit
outdistance the moon.
~ Sally Borden, UU poet
