Guiding Our Programs
The Director of Religious Education supervises the teaching program for both our youngest children, the elementary and middle school groups and our teen youth group. We encourage the participation of all of the adult members of the fellowship in our RE classes and activities. Our RE teachers are all volunteers. Most volunteers teach just three or four Sundays a year.
RE has continued in a different form on our closed Facebook page with (for now) story time, mediation, chalice lighting and resources shared. For those of you who don’t know, Audible is offering its children’s stories for free right now, the Metropolitan Opera is streaming many full operas, and certain zoos and museums are offering online tours. Hopefully many of us can start each morning with a bit more mindfulness, paying attention to our breath and our thoughts, assessing our need for balance, for space and community, and finding creative ways of getting those needs met. Please feel free to call on me if you need anything – my hands are ready to help in any way I can. This is how we will get through this; closer to ourselves, to our inner lives, to our homes and hearts. May our spirits rest and be renewed in this time of uncertainty, knowing that uncertainty and our will to love are all we can ever truly be certain of.
