Closing (3 minutes), Workshop 3: How We Grow in Faith — Philosophy of Religious Education

In "The New UU," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Copies of Singing the Living Tradition for all participants

Description of Activity

Introduce the Closing with words such as:

Our approach to religious education is thoroughly rooted in our approach to religion itself. William Ellery Channing, whom we mentioned in Workshop 2 as a prominent spokesman for early Unitarianism, offered now well-known words that explain something of our approach to children's religious education. We can imagine, though, how they might apply to the entire lifespan. I invite you to join me in reading responsively Reading 652 in the hymnbook, "The Great End of Religious Instruction."

Lead the responsive reading. Extinguish the chalice.
