Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Northern Nevada

 

You may be asking, is the program at this Fellowship right for our family? Is it worth the commitment of time? The answers depend on what you want for your children.

  • If you wish your child to develop values of kindness, tolerance, generosity, responsibility, and caring, our religious education program and our community will help you.
  • If you hope your child will be an independent thinker, ready to think critically about all dogma presented to him/her, from advertising to media images to peer pressure to dogmatic religion, our program will help you.
  • If you want your child to experience his/her spiritual side, to nurture the spontaneous religious nature of all children, to stay in touch with wonder and gratitude, our program will help you.
  • If you want your child to be part of a community that will help him/her deal with the awesome forces of birth, growth, sex, and death, our community will help you.
  • If you want your child to respect the inherent worth of every human being and understand the structures of oppression and injustice that keep so many from living full lives, our program will help you.
  • If you wish your child to know more about the world’s religions and the world’s peoples, and respect the truths and longings for the sacred embedded in all of them, our program will help you.
  • If you wish your child to feel a deeply caring connection with our Earth and see him or herself as part of an interdependent web of all its parts and creatures, our program will help you.
  • If you wish your child to understand the religious significance of holidays in ways that cannot be taught in public schools, so that these holidays can be milestones in their spiritual life each year, our program will help you.

Working as a team, we, you, your children, and our community will nourish these values and, we believe, make a difference in your lives.
