Middle School Children in RE
This program introduces youth in grades 6-8 to the faith traditions and practices of other religious groups in their community. Neighboring Faiths is flexible and invites adaptation and creativity. Leachers and participants together plan their program, determining which religious groups they want to learn about, visit, and relate to their growing Unitarian Universalist faith. Neighboring Faiths provides a number of processes for engaging participants in a religious journey that invites the participation of parents, other interested adults, and religious leaders in the congregation and the community. This program is the precursor to the subsequent Coming of Age program, providing a foundation of exploration that prepares youth for creating their credos the next year.
