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.
The webinar platform is Zoom, which you can download from Zoom. The module requires the use of a computer with internet connection and a video camera. Participants must also create a UUA profile name in order to access the learning site. On UUA.org, click on “create account” at the top right and follow instructions on the page.
