“To us, family is a big tent. Family means chosen family, family of origin, second family, blended family, adoptive family, extended family. Family means two married men with three cats, a grandmother raising her granddaughter, a single adult with far-flung siblings, and a man and a woman with four kids. We celebrate the full spectrum of sexual orientations and gender identities that families include. We nurture all kinds of families, helping families be resilient and loving.” – UUA Website
Beyond curriculum, our programs offer families space to explore the mysteries and unanswerable questions of life. We invite and encourage people of all ages to wonder – as individuals, as families, and in communities. And, together, we seek ways to live more joyous, more courageous and more compassionate lives.
Recognizing that life-sustaining spiritual formation happens more at home than in one hour a week on Sundays, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) offers a pull-out section of contemporary and fun activities for families to share at home. Every issue of UU World magazine includes Families: Weave a Tapestry of Faith. You can download copies from their archive, at uua.org.
