In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
Spiritual preparation for the two workshops on Christianity may be challenging, particularly for those with Christian "baggage." It is important to be at peace with your own history in order to fairly present this material and effectively facilitate youth's understanding of Christianity.
This workshop begins with the teachings of Jesus, whose theology and world view started a new religious view, but not a new religion. Others started the institutions of the Christian Church. All the complications around his teachings and the creation of the elaborate trappings surrounding them began after his death. As one of our UU Sources, the teachings of Jesus are part of the historical foundation of Unitarian Universalism, and continue to have meaning for many UUs today. Reflect on what you find of value in the teachings of the rabbi, Jesus.
