R.E.flections

August is upon us, bringing with it back-to-school energy, orientations, retreats, camping trips, new classes, new friends, new teachers. August, with all it's newnesses, holds the promise of possibility. We sign up and sign on for the possibilities of personal and communal transformation.

In R.E., we let ourselves dream of the possibilities. We dream and we hunger for truly beloved community, for creating spaces for us to become our true selves in authentic and just relationship with others in their true selves. We come together knowing beloved community is only possible with community, with each other, and with practice.

Everything is possible. And we can begin here in Religious Education. Come and join us.

 

Warmly,Julia

Teacher Appreciation

Hello R.E.!

This last Sunday was our last day of the regular R.E. program year, before we start Summer R.E. All R.E. classes celebrated the year, reflected on the stories, games, songs, discussions, and spiritual practices they have experienced over the course of the year. During the worship service, we took a moment to recognize many ERUUFians who have given their time and their love to working with our children and youth this year.

Teachers, thank you for all your love and care for the children and youth in this congregation. This is a real gift. The seeds of wisdom you've planted will last a lifetime and will ripple out through relationship. It has been a joy working with you all this year, and inspiring to know that together we can raise the next generation with strong morals, spiritual practices, and compassion.

This coming Sunday begins the Summer R.E. program. Prek-8th grade will be making "Something Out of Nothing," and exploring evolution, creation, magic, and wonder.

Hello Again!

My family leave time was amazing, challenging, funny, strange, and precious. We finally got to meet Emery Tyler Ferrell, and at 3 months, we are just starting to get to show him the world. He has been patient with Brian and I as we bumble through early parenthood, and when he smiles, he lights up all the corners of my heart. He is doing so well, and I look forward to introducing you to him in a few weeks when he is a little bigger.
