Religious Education Looking Forward – February 2016

As our February Focus Month comes near we will be focusing on our Third UU principle: acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregation.  In our RE classes, we will be exploring this principle by discussing Vision, Leadership and Authority in the context of the individual and as a congregation.  During these weeks we will be discussing our future and/or dreams, what it means to be a leader or an authority figure, and responsibilities that come with leadership and authority.

I would like to take a moment to thank all of the people I have already met with. It’s been a pleasure talking to all of you and getting to become a part of this congregation.  With that being said, I would love to meet all of you and we’ll have the perfect opportunity to meet at the RE mix. The RE Committee has put together an evening social event for the adults of the RE Program, a night where we can call a babysitter, meet up, and have some food and drinks.  We’ll be meeting at Just Jake’s (located on Park Street) on Friday, February 5th, at 7:00 PM.  If you need a babysitter feel free to contact me via email at We have a list available of both Montclair State University students looking to make a few extra dollars and Senior Youth who may be looking to get some congregational hours.
