This Week in Religious Education

A new month brings us a new theme - Healing. In RE we will explore this theme through healing the earth, healing through medicine, and by exploring an anti-colonialist approach to Thanksgiving. Additionally, the Middle School group is beginning a unit on Money - how it is taboo, how we use it, relate to it, save it, spend it, share it, and more.  And the High School group has planned a party at Painted Plate and an interfaith potluck with youth from CIC. It's going to be a great new month!

November's Theme is Healing

Sunday and Every Day: Taking it Home

Dia De Los Muertos, Samhain, and Halloween

IMG_E2008Last Sunday the younger children learned about the holidays of Dia de los Muertos, Samhain, and Halloween while the Middle School group began their work with the topic of Money.

Discuss it at home:

  • How do we remember those who have died?
Do you believe in ghosts or spirits? Why or why not?

Faith Adventure:

Take flowers to a nearby graveyard, or to the marker for someone in your family who has died. Use this as a chance to just talk about death and how we remember.

Next Sunday:

  • Nursery Care
  • Spirit Play: My Mama Earth story
