This Sunday in RE

Dear Awesome UUI Families,

We have a wonderful day planned for your family tomorrow at UUI!

Some highlights are:

  • Our preschoolers - junior high youth will be immersed in and learning through the magical world of Harry Potter.

  • Our Owlettes (Preschoolers) will be learning about science (Potions) with teachers Judy Pleiss and Shonnea Abdullah.

  • Our Kindergarten - 5th Graders will be learning about the magic of kindness with our Worship Leader, Jamie Hinson-Rieger, teachers Pam Risley, Bonnie Underwood, Ryan Underwood and me.

  • Our junior high youth will be creating and serving butter beer with Shellie Rich to all our Hogwarts students.

  • Our Senior High Youth will be meeting and talking about their experiences at Pride this year. Stacy Robinson will be facilitating.

  • Worship Associate, John Russell, will be delivering the sermon, "Facts Matter". Description: Facts are the critical foundation of society, from science and news-gathering to education and government. They are the building blocks of knowledge and understanding, and a cornerstone of many great religions. But the pursuit of facts is under assault, whether it's the muzzling of scientists or political propaganda masquerading as truth. Join us this Sunday as journalist and worship associate John Russell takes a look at what's at stake, and what the Unitarian Universalist tradition has to say about it.

I hope your family can join us!

Peace and Love,

Susanne Hinson-Rieger
Director of Lifespan Religious Education
