This curriculum explores the history and development of different faith traditions around the world through a religious journey close to home. Participants plan their own program by choosing which religious groups to learn about, visit, and relate to Unitarian Universalism. They compare and contrast ideas about God, symbols, sources of authority, prophesy and leaders, holy days, beliefs and practices, and social service.
Students will visit the sacred spaces of our community’s neighboring faiths and welcome practitioners of other faiths into our own classroom. By providing first-hand experience of and dialogue with different religious communities, Building Bridges broadens students’ knowledge of humanity, and enriches and emboldens their spiritual search.
