Many of us use stories and activities from the Unitarian Universalist Association's (UUA's) Tapestry of Faith curricula when we customize religious education (RE) to explore a theme such as "hope," "freedom," or "hospitality." This trend is growing: More and more congregations are offering theme-based, coordinated learning and worship to multiple age levels and multigenerational groups.
We can help one another increase our collective capacity for theme-based programming. The Faith Development Office welcomes you into a collaborative effort to tag Tapestry of Faith stories, activities, and entire sessions by theme. Do you already use monthly themes? Are you motivated to explore Tapestry of Faith curricula through a "theme" lens? There is a way for everyone to help.
The instructions below explain how you can contribute using a spreadsheet template we have created for this purpose. Share activities from Tapestry of Faith programs that you’ve found fit a certain theme. Tell us which story from Tapestry of Faith you have used to introduce a particular theme as a Story for All Ages, in a children’s chapel, or in another context. Consider agreeing to “theme” an entire program that you know well or one you want to explore—for example, Creating Home, Moral Tales, or Amazing Grace.
If you’re already using monthly themes, please share the related Tapestry of Faith resources you have found useful. Find the customized Excel spreadsheet template online and download it to your computer, as per the instructions below.
Even if you are not using monthly themes, you can help us tag theme-related stories, activities, or entire sessions in a Tapestry of Faith program. Perhaps you are on a teaching team and have become very familiar with a curriculum. Sharing your ideas is an ideal way for RE volunteers to contribute, and we are grateful!
