All are welcome to join Lifespan Religious Education (RE) Coordinator, Carson Jones, and RE Music Specialist, George Weisman, when they lead the live, interactive Children’s Worship for All Ages at 1:00 PM on the first and third Sundays of the month.
This year’s Religious Education theme is JUSTICE. In November, we will learn about the struggle for African American voting rights and the oppressive system of assimilation in Native American boarding schools.
On November 1, we will walk alongside Lillian, a one-hundred-year-old African American woman, as she recalls her family’s tumultuous uphill journey to gain voting rights in Lillian’s Right To Vote by Jonah Winter and Shane W. Evans.
On November 15, in When We Were Alone by David A. Robertson and Julie Flett, a young Indigenous girl has a lot of questions for her grandmother: Why does she always wear brightly colored clothing and her long hair in braids? And why does she often speak another language and spend so much time with her family? The girl learns of a painful time when Native American children were separated from their families by law and forced to attend boarding schools where their culture was taken away, and her grandmother does these things to reclaim her heritage.
We look forward to this year together of living our 2nd Unitarian Universalist Principle of Justice, Equity, and Compassion.
