“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 Lifespan Religious Education 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.
