Love and Help
Love and Help by Jill Bauer is a program in Unitarian Universalist (UU) identity for seven- to eleven-year-olds. The workbook format of Love and Help encourages youth to discover their personal beliefs about themselves, family, friendship, and their UU congregation. The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) assumes that this program will be introduced to a child by a parent or other helping adult within the context of a Unitarian Universalist religious community.
The flexible program was designed to lead toward the UUA Cub Scout Religious Emblem Award, but it can be used by both boys and girls in church school classes. Upon completion of the program, a certificate and an emblem may be awarded to each young person, usually in a special recognition ceremony.
The UU Kids Book, by Charlene Brotman, Barbara Marshman, and Ann Fields, is a resource to use with Love and Help. Each child in the Love and Help program needs a copy of these publications to complete and keep as a record of his or her own UU identity treasury. Both are available from the UUA Bookstore. No separate booklet is available or necessary for the advisor.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
