Resources for Family Ministry
Recently there have been two great posts on the UUA’s Call and Response Blog. The first is Resources for Families: Enriching the Ground So Faith Can Grow, and the second is Resources for Families…So Faith Can Grow, Part II. The first of these blogs provides some particular resources for parenting, and the second provides more parent focused resources to help parents develop their own faith and understanding of Unitarian Universalism so they can share that with their children. Many of the resources in the first blog are available free on-line. The other references books and curricula available in bookstores including the UUA Bookstore (http://www.uuabookstore.org/).
Many of us were not raised as Unitarian Universalists, and these resources can help us understand our faith well enough that we can share it with our children. If it makes you anxious to think of your children asking you what you believe, or what happens after you die, then these resources are a place to begin to figuring out for yourself what you believe before you try to answer your children’s questions. I also encourage you to explore many of our Adult Religious Education classes. Finding your grounding as a Unitarian Universalist will help you be a better Unitarian Universalist Parent!
