Colorful circle with "Religious Educators GET CONNECTED Quarterly Meetups to gather and share *special topics"

We are inviting religious education professionals from across the continent to virtually join members of the UUA’s Faith Development Co-Lab for a time of connection with other religious educators around a theme. Our goal is not to "fill you up" with information, but, more so, to have time for you as attendees to share your thoughts with each other. After a short intro and presentation on the theme, there will be peer breakouts, allowing you to choose what aspects of the theme you’d like to connect around (or to talk about something else altogether). There will be some processing time after the breakouts, and then a closing. Our next connection theme will be announced at the end of each meet-up.

In May we gather to share and participate in a collective deep listening experience called Acoustic Resonance. Here we will share stories about what is alive, vital, or promising in our work in congregations. This Resonance exercise is both a spiritual practice and organizing strategy developed by Movimiento Cosecha (www.lahuelga.com), inspired by the work of Paulo Freire, where storytelling and deep listening combine to establish deeper connections... Connections upon which movement building can take place. Let's build something together!
