2018 ~2019 Currculum
Middle School Youth
6th – 8th Grades
Middle School will begin the year exploring The Fifth Dimension and finish the year with Riddle and Mystery.
The Fifth Dimension Program Goals:
- Consider social issues and the ways in which our faith can help us understand our values.
- Understand ways in which the right of conscience calls us to do what’s right, even if there are possible negative consequences.
- Examine how our choices affect others around us, as well as ourselves.
- Explore how taking a stand is related to perspective and point of view.
Riddle and Mystery by Richard S. Kimball
The purpose of Riddle and Mystery is to assist youth in their own search for understanding. Each of the 16 sessions introduces and processes a Big Question. The first three echo Paul Gauguin’s famous triptych: Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? The next ten, including Does God exist? and What happens when you die?, could be found on almost anyone’s list of basic life inquiries. The final three are increasingly Unitarian Universalist: Can we ever solve life’s mystery? How can I know what to believe? What does Unitarian Universalism mean to me?
