Our Religious Exploration program for children emphasizes the open search for truth and meaning that we value as Unitarian Universalists. We want our children to embrace and celebrate the mysteries of the world around us. Our weekly time together incorporates some of the ritual we have in the larger worship services; a chalice lighting, a time of silent meditation and a time for sharing of joys and concerns. Additionally, story telling and craft projects are usually included in our time together.
Rev. Jane Dwinell talks to the children as a part of her installation service explaining her role in the ministry within the Adirondack UU Community.
The UU Principles for children are as follows:
We believe that each and every person is important.
We believe that all people should be treated fairly and kindly.
We believe that we should accept one another and keep on learning together.
We believe that each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life.
We believe that all persons should have a vote about the things that concern them.
We believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world.
We believe in caring for our planet Earth, the home we share with all living things.
