Deadline is September 8; find details on UUA.org and on Facebook

Reclaiming Prophetic Witness (Skinner House, 2012) is the 2014-15 UUA Common Read. A Discussion Guide will be available free, online in October. A Common Read may be the ideal adult faith development program for your congregation. Read why and how to do this year's Common Read. Book author Paul Rasor is director of the Center for the Study of Relgious Freedom and a professor of religious studies at Virginia Wesleyan University.

Do you facilitate Our Whole Lives (OWL) for grades 7-9? A free, 90-minute webinar from the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ will orient you to new material on bullying, social media, and other topics in the 2014 edition of OWL for Grades 7-9. Register by emailing religiouseducation@uua.org to attend Tues. Sept. 16 (1 pm Eastern), Wed. Sept. 17 (8 pm Eastern), or Tues. Sept. 30 (8 pm Eastern).

Unitarian Universalist (UU) Girl Scouts now have a religious recognition program to access online, at no charge, in a user-friendly, interactive format. Religion in Life includes a version for younger girls and one for older girls, plus a user guide for Girl Scout leaders, religious professionals, and parents. Activities and projects invite grade 4 through 12 girls to explore intersections of UU Principles and Girl Scout values. 

Exploring military ministry can be a structured, engaging process for your Unitarian Universalist (UU) community with a NEW, free, six-workshop adult religious education (RE) curriculum: The Military Ministry Toolkit for Congregations (PDF) and companion 23-minute video.
