Goals of the Module
The overall goals of this module are:
- To gain an understanding of identity as a process of development across the lifespan which unfolds through an interplay of heritage, culture, and lived experiences
- To learn how this process unfolds in youth raised as Unitarian Universalists and persons who came to the faith later in life
- To identify ways to foster the process, specifically among Religious Education participants and generally among congregants
- To explore the Unitarian Universalist Principles and Sources as part of identity development
