 “I find your lack of faith disturbing.” – Darth Vader

This summer we will be practicing our faith through the lessons of Star Wars. Each week at the 9:30 and 11:00 services students ages 3-12 will be taking part in the Jedi Academy. Lessons for the younger students will focus on the senses, and lessons on love, hope and faith. Lessons for the older students will focus on our 7 principles along with light vs. dark, fear, death, wisdom. Students are encouraged to dress in their favorite Star Wars character attire.

The older students will have a chance to contribute to their summer program titled UUtube: Morality and the Internet. Each session, they will share different youtube videos and memes and spend time dissecting and analyzing them for deeper meaning and cultural influence. Their goal will be to produce a UU video of their own by the end of the summer. The video will be posted on youtube for all to see.

Our Youth Group for middle and high school youth will meet this summer on July 26 and August 23 from 6:30-8:30. Dinner is provided along with an activity and time for community.

We will be offering OWL (Our whole lives human sexuality course) this fall. I have 5 people planning to go to a training at the end of August. We hope to offer the course to two different age groups. More details about the schedule and orientation meeting will be available soon.

We are still in need of RE teachers for summer and fall. Please see me if you are interested and we can figure out the appropriate place for you to volunteer.

See you in the RE!
