Adult Religious Education
One of the principles of our faith speaks of the importance of a "free and responsible search for truth and meaning." We believe that this search for truth begins as soon as a child can think and continues throughout his or her entire lifetime.
Even as adults, we never stop exploring our changing beliefs. We never stop discovering new kinds of thinking and new challenges to our thoughts. We never stop needing new ways to express our beliefs. We never stop uncovering new aspects of the wonder and mystery of the world. We never stop facing difficult ethical dilemmas. We never stop learning how much we do not know.
Just as with our children's religious education, Unitarian Universalist adult religious education helps to give interested members the information and support necessary to find their own way along their spiritual path. From curricula on building a personal ethical code to meditation retreats to dinner discussion groups to Bible study classes, our congregations offer diverse and flexible opportunities for adults to advance their own spiritual journeys.
In addition to providing a guiding hand in spiritual matters, Unitarian Universalist adult religious education also helps provide tools to face life’s challenges. Programs, classes, readings, and discussion groups on topics such as anti-racism, marriage, socially-responsible investing, and death and the afterlife help Unitarian Universalist adults approach difficult topics from a place of support, knowledge, and religious integrity.
Regardless of your age, abilities, level of education, or place along your spiritual journey, there is a place for you in our religious education program.
