3-5 Year Olds — Spiritually Growing Child: Henry Works
In this week’s story, the protagonist is Henry Bear, an individualist (with a strong community spirit) who emulates the teachings of his famous namesake—Unitarian Henry David Thoreau. Henry likes to take his time and soak up the nature he sees everywhere around him. He does favors as he walks to Mr. Emerson's, Mr. and Mrs. Hawthorne, and Mrs. Alcott's. Youngsters will appreciate Henry's endeavors, and understand him, having had the opportunity to combine work and play in creative ways. Goal: To encourage children to value creative work, helping others and simplicity.

1st – 4th — Seek Truth
Friend, I have lost the way.
The way leads on.
Is there another way?
The way is one ... .
I cannot find the way.
The way leads on.
Oh, places I have passed!
That journey's done.
And what will come at last?
The way leads on.
— excerpted from "The Way" by Edwin Muir, in Singing the Living Tradition

The session introduces our fourth Unitarian Universalist Principle, a free and responsible search for truth and meaning, through the story of Egbert Ethelred Brown, a Jamaican man who converted to Unitarianism. Though he experienced many hardships to fulfill his calling to the Unitarian ministry, Brown devoted his life to inviting others to learn about our free faith. In this session the children explore the basics of a Unitarian theology. They engage in their own search for truth and meaning and investigate the concept of a call to ministry.

5th – 8th Grades — World Religions
NO CLASS TODAY AS YOUTH ATTEND THE SENIOR HIGH LED SERVICE AT FIRST UNITARIAN

The senior high youth group created and will lead this Sunday's 11 a.m. service on the theme of journeys. Come and see how Unitarian Universalism empowers our youth to be religious leaders.
