This week at uuworld.org: All parents teach religion.
Roberta M. Nelson writes that even secular parents are religious educators. (Her essay is adapted from her contribution to a collection on secular parenting, though Nelson is a longtime minister of religious education in the UUA.) Meanwhile, I review the first children's book in ages that offers an explicitly UU view of Jesus.
If you've been following the burst of publicity about Kate Braestrup's new book, Here If You Need Me — including the excerpt in Oprah about Braestrup's decision to become a UU minister after her husband was killed in a car accident — you may want to revisit the UU World archives for this 2005 profile of Braestrup's ministry as a chaplain in the Maine wilderness.
In the news this week, Don Skinner writes about the UU congregation in Gulfport, Mississippi, which lost its property to Hurricane Katrina but now has plans to build a church. Sonja Cohen, meanwhile, tracks Unitarian Universalists in the media.
