As you can tell by the title, I’m a little stuck on the idea of adult religious education. (and if you’ve read this blog over a period of time, you know that I’ve been stuck on it for a long time)
Last year there was a lot of talk about lay theological education. With the change of administrations, that talk seems to have gone by the wayside. Since this thread has been about religious education, it felt like the right time to bring the subject up again.
Let’s ask ourselves this question…is the reason that so many “new” UUs (those who have been involved with UUism for 5 years or less) go to seminary is because we don’t offer Sunday School for adults that gives them the information they want/need? Do we implicitly tell people to go to seminary so we don’t have to do the job of educating adults ourselves?
