Our Whole Lives (OWL) Human Sexuality Curriculum
Led by specially trained volunteers, Our Whole Lives helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. It equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture. Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, Our Whole Lives not only provides facts about anatomy and human development, but also helps participants clarify their values, build interpersonal skills, and understand the spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of sexuality.
OWL Classes are now in process and full for the year. It will be offered again in the Fall of 2014.
Sunday Morning (9:30 & 11:00 am)
NEW CLASS beginning in January 2013: Popcorn Theology
Popcorn Theology takes the concept and popularity of movie night to explore issues of theology and ethics for Unitarian Universalists.
Each session has a selected excerpt which lasts approximately 15 to 20 minutes to allow for the one-hour RE format of most congregations, however, the entire movie can be shown in a longer format and used with additional suggested activities and discussion questions. Popcorn Theology for Youth uses movies rated G, PG or PG-13 to explore theological and ethical issues.
