The Interconnected Web of RE
As many of you know, David Walsh has been keeping all things RE updated on our website for many years. He has provided pictures, content and entered RE updates from me and the committee time and time again. I would like to extend my thanks to David for all his hard work and gentle reminders over the years. The RE Committees and I can’t thank you enough!
Former RE student Ethan Farthing has recently been working on setting up our new website. He has put in many hours this year, while going to school at CNU. We thank him as well for his help in making this change. Megan Jensen and members of the Communications Committee are now working on the process of collecting content.
So, I would like to ask our families and volunteer teachers for their input as to what to put on our RE pages. We will definitely have a RE main page that will explain our program, describe our classes, give weekly updates and information for potential visitors. We will have a page for our Youth Group as well. But what else would you like to see? What would be helpful for you? A calendar of RE events? Other UU resources for children? Suggested reading lists? Links to parenting concerns? Please let Megan or I know what you might like to access by clicking on our pages.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words but we want to make sure we have the right pictures and more importantly, pictures that we have permission to use. For safety concerns, we need to make sure we are posting pictures of children and youth properly. Therefore, we plan to have consent forms for pictures that show the faces of children and youth. We will not use the names of the children we feature or tag them on facebook and we ask that anyone recognizing a child, not use the child’s name in their comments. PLEASE stick to general comments!
I look forward to working with everyone to make our UUFP Children’s RE pages attractive, informative and welcoming to our present and future members.
See you in the RE!
