ERUUF Religious Education has moved online! We've had enthusiastic appreciation from our parents and participants for these online classes so far. We are grateful for all the helping helpers (volunteers, and staff) who continue to take care of our community during this time. We are grateful to be entrusted with their strength and generosity.
There is an expression in Religious Education, "The congregation is the curriculum," which means the real, live things happening between members in a congregation supersedes pre-pared curriculum in R.E.. In the reality of the pandemic, we are using the virus, especially the impacts of the virus, as our curriculum. We are allowing the pandemic to be a central doorway to spiritual conversation and growth for our young people.
In R.E., until we can gather in-person again, we will be processing the coronavirus and its emotional, physical, financial, mental, and spiritual impact on us as individuals and on us as a society. For our littlest ones, this means we'll be asking, how are you, focusing on friendships, and wondering what makes community. For our elementary wizards and witches, we'll be fighting the horcrux of sickness. For our older youth, we'll be in a bootcamp of spiritual practices as we navigate the soul's challenges in this time. We hope your children and youth can participate.
Beginning on April 19, R.E. classes will begin meeting online from 9:30-10:30 am and from 11:30 am -12:30 pm.
