We had a great Religious Education this week!
Our Roots Class (pre-k to first grade) had a fun intro to our UU faith and added their names to our class wall with Laura.
Our Seedlings (2nd to 5th grade) discussed various scientific facts about water such as the water cycle and pondered how magical and incredible this substance is that we all depend on for life. We also connected the topic to various places near and far that don’t have reliable access to clean water and recalled our own experiences of missing water during the winter freeze last year. Finally, we watched a reading of We Are Water Protectors, a story of a young indigenous girl who is fighting to keep an oil pipeline off her tribal lands, and made watercolor raindrop art.
Our Youth were invited to remain in the service this week to experience the water ceremony with the adults.
