Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Building Bridges: A World Religions Program for 8th-9th Grades


Without an excellent editor, nothing worthy of print ever makes it to publication. Attentive, patient, and creative, Jessica York's careful and tireless ministrations have greatly benefitted this work.

Acknowledgment is also due loved ones, without whom this work could never have been undertaken: Kathleen and especially Mignon, Will, and Forrest Bryant made creative contributions, rewrite suggestions, and offered unfailing support. The Reverend Chuck Freeman, whose thoughtful ideas, passionate commitment to Unitarian Universalism and nontraditional outlook influenced many aspects of this work, also must accept radical gratitude for sustaining the author with his steadfastly positive approach to life, his unwavering encouragement, and his love.
