A Joyful Path!
Very exciting news! After a long hiatus, religious education has started again at UNMC with this great curriculum from ProgressiveChristianity.org. The class for kids 6-8 is meeting once a month. Perhaps you know a family who would like to introduce the idea of spiritual life to their children in an inclusive, non-dogmatic way that honors the teachings and path of Jesus?
April 27 - "A Teacher of the Way" - Who was Jesus?
May 18 - "The Stories of Our Tradition" - The Bible and how we use it
June 22 - "A Pocket Full of Coins" - Discovering divine energy
