I brought the kids to an early years festival this past spring and came across a pamphlet for this program. It's for kids aged 4-6 and they go around to different places of worship to learn about their religious beliefs as well as how to be respectful to different religions/cultures. It's sponsored by our local UUC (Unitarian Universalist Congregation).
I'm really looking forward to doing this with the kids. I wish Sky could participate, though. My parents are very religious and it's had a huge influence on his beliefs. I like the idea of him deciding on his own what he believes, but I don't really feel that he's doing that with only experiencing that one religion and having it presented to him as the right way to believe.
I also like the program for the tolerance aspect. I did a similar thing with my high school world religions class. We got to experience different religions first hand by visiting their places of worship and having someone of that faith teaching us about it. It was right after 911 and hearing a lot of the hate speech about what Islam was about, it was excellent to have that experience and be able to educate people when they said something ignorant.
Our orientation in Sept 20th. I'll let y'all know how it goes.
