We Discover Faith Together, in Our Families

Intentional, structured religious education is one way to grow in faith, at any age. And we recognize that faith development happens outside of our faith communities, too—especially at home. We know that parents are their children's primary religious educators, not only through instruction they give, but also by the choices they make and the modeling of an attitude toward faith, meaning, and purpose that their lives offer children every day.

We support one another to discover and rediscover a seeking, active faith in the context of our family lives.

  • Tapestry of Faith 
    By creating the first, ever online lifespan curricula for our congregations, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) has ensured that seekers as well as members can engage in faith study at home. Each program includes stories, activities, worship, and social action ideas to nurture people of all ages in ethics, spirit, and faith. Parents can go online and read the Tapestry of Faith curriculum their children experience in religious education programs. Every session features Taking It Home and Find Out More sections to help you extend the session topics.
  • Family Pages in UU World 
    The four-page, themed centerfold in UU World draws from stories, activities, and faith development guidance in Tapestry of Faith programs. These pages, edited by Susan Lawrence, offer inspiration and ideas to use at home—for parents to share with children, elders to share with grandchildren, and UUs and seekers of all ages to explore.
