Raising UU’s or … ?
As the Religious Education Committee, with parental input, forms goals for our Religious Education program, it’s a good time for this conversation. For more than 40 years we have lost 80-90% of our youth. Why? It’s complicated. But if SWUU is raising future UU’s, or wants to welcome homegrown UU’s, it’s a dilemma that’s everyone’s problem. What, exactly, are we doing? Who are we raising? And—who are we becoming?
We are a congregation of free faith and religious diversity. We meet to celebrate the miracle of our being and the wonder and mystery of our universe. We seek to provide a caring, accepting community which supports ongoing individual and spiritual growth. We strive to live our values, accepting our individual responsibility to be active in environmental and social concerns in our church, community, and world. And because we share these values, we include the voices and dreams of all who choose to gather with us.
