“Pot of Gold” religious education conference at UUCPA
Date(s) - 10/01/2016
9:00 am - 3:30 pm
On Saturday, Oct. 1, 9 am to 3:30 pm: Pot of Gold, the Pacific Central District religious education workshop, will be held at UUCPA. This annual conference has hands-on workshops for Sunday school teachers, youth advisors, and RE committee members. Plus the keynote speaker will be Dr. Mark Hicks, the Angus Maclean Professor of Religious Education at Meadville Lombard Theological School, one of our UU graduate theological schools.
Dr. Hicks’ address is entitled “Teaching As Spiritual Practice.”
His presentation aims to help teachers see themselves as capable of opening up spiritual spaces for their children and youth. A workshop will follow the keynote in which Dr. Hicks will use the notion of “teaching race/ethnicity” to children as an object lesson. Participants will get to put into practice ideas from the morning’s keynote.
UUCPA will pay the registration fee for anyone volunteering in our children and youth programs. For more about this conference, including a list of workshops, please see the conference Web site:
