What do duct tape, a hardhat, sandpaper and a magnifying glass have to do with religious education? They are some of the real tools that we will use in the Toolbox of Faith program as symbols of the tools we use as Unitarian Universalists. For example, we will use duct tape to reflect on being flexible in our faith; a hardhat to represent being resilient and sandpaper to illustrate how to smooth out rough spots with humor. They will hear intriguing, thought-provoking stories about the important qualities of our faith and have discussions to reflect on how we can live our faith in our everyday lives.
Interspersed through out the Toolbox of Faith lessons, the class will enjoy promise stories designed specifically for older children in a Spirit Play format. These will enhance the overall theme of Toolbox of Faith. Charles Darwin, Sophia Fahs and Adin Ballou are some the people in the promise stories your son/ daughter will learn about and how these people embody UU principles.
