Religious Explorations: Recent posts

Here are recent posts to social media in my professional role as Administrative Coordinator for the Religious Explorations program at a church in Ashland, Oregon, the Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. When curating these items, I look for resources and commentary that strengthen constituent families.

In an insurance ad, children portray the “low priority” customers. UU blogger Katy Carpman responds to the commercial’s “blunt” commentary on children’s value in U.S. culture. (Via UU World’s The Interdependent Web).

Are you planning a day of service for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day? From the Olympia, Washington UU Congregation, the Faith Formation Calendar includes a list of recommended resources.

Do the stories and images you post online about your children respect their inherent worth and dignity? At Call and Response/UUA Blogs, writer Melanie Davis expresses caution about adults allowing their urge to “share” to usurp their children’s privacy.

“How can we explain the issues, the history, and the legacy of race and racism in our society?” At The Children’s Chalice, DRESara shares resources for having these conversations with children.
