The Lifespan Learning program strives to offer the same “basics” of the program for children and youth: Unitarian Universalist history and heritage; Unitarian Universalist identity: world religions: Jewish and Christian teachings: ethical philosophies: and understanding and making sense of the interconnected web of life.
For adults who have familiarity with these areas, the program offers opportunities to go deeper into these topics and also expand to areas that foster their philosophical and spiritual practice. Like the program for children and youth, the program strives to offer different ways to address the plurality of learning styles for adults. Lifespan Learning is also a means to overcome oppression in our society at large.
Current and Upcoming Offerings:
Seeking the Historical Jesus
March 3, 10, 17 at 7pm led by Rev. Sam Trumbore
Reza Aslan, in his book Zealot, brings together the latest research and writing about what we know about first century Galilee and Jerusalem, what we can infer about Jesus’ life and death, and the first hundred years after his death. We will use this book to learn about and discuss that research and writing in a series of three classes. An inexpensive way to buy the book, not yet available in paperback, is to get the Kindle version that can be read on any computer using Amazon’s free down-loadable Kindle Reader software.
