Religious education takes a lifetime. It happens both within and beyond a congregation’s walls. We strive to guide one another—all ages among us—in learning, personal change, and living with integrity, joy, courage, and service.
Religious education may happen in a Sunday Service while singing a hymn. It happens when a child asks an important question. Our spirits grow when our joys and sorrows are supported by those near us. Our hearts are educated when we hear the wisdom of the young and the old.
In UU religious education, we learn from poetry, discussion, from ancient traditions and the cutting edge of science. We learn from everything from watching a movie to making coffee. All life is a source of our growing and deepening.
The Religious Education program at UU Wausau is designed to create the conditions in which people feel invited to grow in the deep, interior place that we call “soul.” We sing, light candles, explore new ideas, talk together at meals, serve the community, plant seeds in our community garden, and welcome each person who comes through our door. We read and make meals. Each and every act is a path to spiritual growth.
