    Set Good Boundaries to Create Covenant

    “Good fences make good neighbors” – Now as Then My best friend from college taught me a phrase I’d never considered using before and hold dear to this day. That phrase is “that’s not ok.” See, until I learned this phrase I was a pushover, I tried very hard to make everyone (especially people I was dating) happy, even at the cost of my own well being.  I gave my power away all the time and felt crummy about it. I spent a lot of mental energy trying to find ways of coping with being stepped on, rather than spending energy cultivating resilience, standing up for myself and setting good personal boundaries. Once, at a…

    One Youth’s Spiritual Awakening

    Spiritual Life and Connection to Everything (We present excerpts of Anna Zimmer’s piece originally on the Huffington Post. -ed.) By contributing writer Anna Zimmer for KidSpirit’s issue, Climate Change: Tending Our Planet. I was not raised in a family where religion played a big role. I have always known that both my parents were Christians at one point in their lives, but they drifted away and by the time I was born, they were both atheists, happy to have their Sunday mornings free of commitments. When I was in elementary school, my mom started going to a church in my town. I didn’t find out what kind of church it was until middle school, when…

    Bridging: the Present and Future of Faith

    The Journey of Faith is Long – With Many Bridges to Cross Faith is a life-long experience, so the Unitarian Universalist Association has resources for Lifespan Faith Development. And where there are spans there are bridges – and Bridgers (youth transitioning to young adulthood). Bridging bridgers is a big deal in Unitarian Universalism. Ours is a multigenerational faith, and today’s youth are the young adult present and future of our congregation. Make it easy for transitioning youth to make new connections and maintain their faith! Urge them to take part in the Bridge Connections program. HERE IS HOW:   THERE AIN’T NO MAGIC ABOUT IT! The Bridge Connections Program makes the connection happen by keeping…
