Unitarian Universalist Curriculum and Resource Developers
UUCARDS chalice

The UUCARDS maintains links with resources for creating, disseminating or making curriculum and other resources available for Unitarian Universalist Lifespan Development and Learning.
Lifespan Faith Development, Unitarian Universalist Association
Lifespan Faith Development material includes listings of curricula. Updates for Tapestry of Faith, a new integrated curriculum for all ages, will be noted on the UUA website.

Lifespan Learning, Canadian Unitarian Council
Lifespan Learning in the Canadian Unitarian Council has a broad range of functions and supports related to Lifespan Religious Education for Canadian Congregations.

The REC-ROOM is designed for exchange of information about curricula and other resources. It is an independent grassroots organization that relies on responses as people use resources.

The Unitarian Sunday School
The purpose of the USSS is to provide funds for the development, testing, publication and distribution of religious education materials that can be used by churches, fellowships and individuals throughout the UUA.

The Church of the Larger Fellowship
In ways ranging from online curricula to email interest groups, from holidays of the world’s religions to UU history for children and adults, the Church of the Larger Fellowship provides resources that support its members of all ages in their spiritual and ethical growth.

UURE History Group (www.uurehistory.org) is cataloging materials used by Unitarians, Universalists, and Unitarian Universalists, particularly the 1700- early 1900’s.

HZMRE Unlimited is updating the Catalog of Religious Education Resources (Unitarian, Universalist, after about 1930) on the web site (www.hzmre.com).

Editorial Comment: The Vision Statement for the UUA Tapestry of Faith is basis for curriculum and resource development, so am including it here. Helen Zidowecki
We envision children, youth, and adults who:
  • know that they are lovable beings of infinite worth, imbued with powers of the soul, and obligated to use their gifts, talents, and potentials in the service of life;
  • affirm that they are part of a Unitarian Universalist religious heritage and community of faith that has value and provides resources for living;
  • accept that they are responsible for the stewardship and creative transformation of their religious heritage and community of faith;
  • realize that they are moral agents, capable of making a difference in the lives of other people, challenging structures of social and political oppression, promoting the health and well-being of the planet, acting in the service of diversity, justice and compassion;
  • recognize the need for community, affirming the importance of families, relationships and connections between and among the generations;
  • appreciate the value of spiritual practice as a means of deepening faith and integrating beliefs and values with everyday life;
  • experience hope, joy, mystery, healing, and personal transformation in the midst of life’s challenges.
