Enter, Rejoice, and Come In

A Religious Education message from Gina

Dear Friends,

I suspect that 2016 will not go down in the record books as anyone’s favorite year. However, as I look back over the year, I realize that there were actually many moments worthy of celebration. This is especially true of our Religious Education program. Some of the RE highlights of 2016 include:

  • The wildly popular Cooking for Cause program
  • Monthly multi-generational worship services
  • Bingo Night
  • Sixth Grade Social
  • Creating a “Why I Love RE” video for RE Sunday
  • OWL (Our Whole Lives) Graduation & Recognition Ceremony
  • Three newly certified Spirit Play teachers
  • Affirmation trip to Boston
  • Well-attended and fun-for-all Trunk or Treat
  • Visiting a mosque
  • Attending a Junior Youth Con in Rockland, MA
  • Implementation of new and innovative curricula, including one based on The Twilight ZoneI am proud of our Religious Education program, and I am passionate about building a community that supports our children in their growth as Unitarian Universalists, seekers of peace, protectors of the earth, and citizens of the world. When I am feeling short on hope and my faith in humanity is waning, I remind myself of the spirit of love that is very much alive in our Religious Education community, and my heart is full.
  • I look forward to the work we will do together in the name of love in 2017.

Gina Campellone, Director of Religious EducationBe well and be loved,
