parents, teachers, and members of the UUCNH congregation, we are
mindful that children/youth are naturally curious, are developing a
sense of self-esteem, and are acquiring interpersonal skills. We also recognize that children develop
spiritually when having fun, by expressing their creativity through the
Arts, and through celebrating significant events in their
Church and Family lives. Therefore,
we, the Religious Education Community, covenant to foster the following:
A compassionate, caring
and safe classroom that offers each child/youth a sense of belonging
participation of our children/youth as part of the larger Church
sense of social justice in our children/youth through participation in
the external community,
awareness, understanding and articulation of the Unitarian Universalist
principles, heritage and identity by our children/youth,
understanding and respect by our children/youth of diversity in
individual viewpoints, lifestyles, cultural histories and religious
understanding of the interdependent web of nature and a commitment by
our children/youth to care for the Earth, and
A spiritual and mindful
way of living.
