In UU Super Heroes the children encounter the lives of some remarkable Unitarians, Universalists and Unitarian Universalists who have acted with courage and wisdom while living fully and making the world a better place for others. (Yes, even Superman—or at least an actor who played him—gets into the act.) Over the course of the year, the children discover how to use their own positive “super powers” in daily life, and, in doing so, to grow both spiritually and ethically. In Faithful Journeys, participants embark on a pilgrimage of faith, exploring how Unitarian Universalism translates into life choices and everyday actions. In each session, they hear historic or contemporary examples of Unitarian Universalist faith in action. Stories about real people model how participants can activate their own personal agency – their capacity to act faithfully as Unitarian Universalists – in their own lives, and children have regular opportunities to share and affirm their own stories of faithful action.
In April and May of 2017, grades K through 5th will join in a special project together.
