October 2018

The Intersection of White Supremacy Culture and the Death of Sunday School

October 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
$30

It is commonly held that change work in congregations is long and slow and often challenging. It’s also no secret that white supremacy culture is deeply embedded in the processes, practices, and decision making norms of our congregations. Could our resistance to change actually be a manifestation of white supremacy culture? Might our inertia towards shifting our model of Sunday School be linked to long ingrained patterns of white supremacy culture?   BUY NOW

The Faith of Black Folks*

October 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
$30

Culture’s influence on our different ways of knowing and being are understated and overlooked in liberal religious education. The exclusion of Blackness in our curricula is felt personally by Black persons in our local congregations. In this webinar, we will take a closer look at how Black religious ways of knowing are absent in the modern, white liberal church and envision a world where Black wisdom informs how we administer, lead, and participate in faith formation practices. Join us. *this…

Future of Faith Formation Series: Fall Cohort

November 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Thursday, repeating until January 3, 2019

$400

We have learned that the future of faith formation requires adaptive leadership. It also requires the attention and engagement of the congregation as a whole. Culture shift, embracing new norms, and bold experimentation is too much for any single person to establish alone. Unitarian Universalists have done this work before. Those who came before us saw the need to attend to the religious education of children in ways they had never seen before. Unitarian Universalists can do this work again.…

Exploring the Mystery of Adult Faith Formation

December 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
$30

A.J. Swoboda wrote in his book, A Better Metaphor for Church that "We do not enter a mystery because of what it gives us or what services are provided for us...we simply enter it." How can we better understand this mystery of what folks are searching for when they walk through our doors - and how can we configure our adult programming to best support their journeys?   BUY NOW

Sermon (Stage Left) : creating worship in the context of theater

January 9, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST
$30

Often, worship services can feel like a collection of isolated moments. There's the "sermon sandwich" (hymn, sermon, hymn), an invitation to prayer/meditation, perhaps a reflection or two and while all of these things can follow a theme, each still exists independently of one another. This webinar invites you to explore how worship can become more dynamic and engaging when created in the context of a theatrical performance divided into two acts. What would it feel like for Sunday worship to…

Supporting Special Needs in Religious Education and Worship

February 7, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST
$30

Churches are one of the few places for those who are pushed to the margins of society. Yet all too often, we don’t know how to fully welcome those with developmental or intellectual disabilities into our programs and congregational life. This webinar will challenge our thinking, push us out of our comfort zones, and ask us to revisit the mission of our faith as our guide when working with children or adults who are often labeled and marginalized in our…

Cultural Appropriation vs. Cultural Impact in Faith Formation (For All)

February 12, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EST
$30

We teach on land that is not our own, surrounded by a country built on the backs of those largely absent from our curricula. Aware of this, we have offended many with our well-intentioned attempts to be culturally inclusive in faith formation. How do we move from misappropriation to allowing multiculturalism to radically change our faith formation and church culture? It is time for us to get real and have a come to Jesus meeting, join Rev. Jaelynn for a…

Parent Ministry 101

March 13, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
$30

A survey of parents by The Barna Group found that “close to nine out of ten parents of children under age 13 believe they have the primary responsibility for teaching their children about religious beliefs and spiritual matters.” However, “a majority of parents do not spend any time during a typical week discussing religion with their children.” Instead, they “generally rely on their church to do all of the religious training their children will receive.” The report concludes that parents…

Drinking From Our Own Wells

May 7, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
$30

Join Rev. Jaelynn for talk, followed by a facilitated conversation around how our identities shape our liberal religious, spiritual path. How do we practice our deep historical, cultural spiritualities in a faith that is predominately white and Eurocentric? Is it safe to bring our ancestral practices into white space and practice with white folks without these practices being disrespected, misappropriated, and abused? Join Rev. Jaelynn for a discussion and bring your ancestors along with you. *this webinar will not be…
