Spring 2017 Curriculum

Embodying lifespan faith development for our congregations, Tapestry of Faith is a collection of curricula and resources that nurture Unitarian Universalist identity, spiritual growth, a transforming faith, and vital communities of justice and love. This project developed out of a broad series of conversations that articulated a future direction for Unitarian Universalist religious growth and learning. In use since 2008 and continually evolving, Tapestry of Faith offers a variety of resources—downloadable, printed, viewable, interactive, and more—a religious growth and learning program for the 21st century. Learn more about the vision of Tapestry of Faith and learning outcomes of each of the four strands: ethical development, faith development, spiritual development and Unitarian Universalist identity.

Signs of Our Faith: Being UU Every Day
By Jessica York
Rev. Morales asks us to think about religion as the practice of being faithful to what you love. In order to do this, you must decide what you love and do your best to live that love faithfully every day. Signs of Our Faith guides children to do their best to live faithful lives every day. It presents fourteen traits or values that most Unitarian Universalist love, including the quest for knowledge, reverence for life, supporting one another on our faith journeys, and public witness. Children examine how their lives do and can exhibit these traits and values, and come to understand that their faith is a living faith whose histories and teachings are fortifications for living faithfully in a complex world.
