Youth Participate in Fall Program During October
Our Spiritual Education for children is available during our 11:00 a.m. Sunday Service on the second through the fifth Sunday of each month. Youth and their families are welcomed to the Spirit Room on Sundays at 11 a.m. Families are invited to stay for the Opening Circle before joining Sunday Service in Unity Hall.
Our youth will join us in October with an adapted version of our Fall Program.
October 2: The first Sunday of every month is a multigenerational service, and children are welcome to attend Sunday Service with their families.
October 9: Unity and Islam. Our youth will learn the 5 Pillars of Islam. They will also learn Islam’s Whirling Dervishes, with music to practice this spinning meditation.
October 16: Unity and Hinduism. Our youth will learn about Brahman, Hindu’s Creator, and Lakshmi and Sarwasati, goddesses who bring live lessons. Youth will also learn “Om Shanti,” a Hindu greeting or parting salutation, along with the power of chanting “Om Purnam” with singer Deba Pramal.
October 23: Unity and Buddhism. Our youth will learn the story of Under the Bodhi Tree, Mandalas, how to chant “Om Mani Padme Hum,” Buddhism’s chant of compassion, and the importance of loving-kindness. Under the Bodhi Tree is the story of Siddhartha Gautama, who, according to legend, was a Hindu prince who renounced his position. One day he sat beneath a Bodhi Tree, became deeply absorbed in meditation, and reflected on his life experience and determination to find the truth. He finally achieved enlightenment and became the Buddha
October 30: Happy Halloween! Our youth will learn about nature-based religions, their symbols, and their importance to the interconnectedness of nature. They will learn the song “We are all connected” with music for drumming. There will be a Halloween celebration with costumes and treats for all.
