    Tapestry of Faith is an online series of programs and resources for all ages that nurture Unitarian Universalist identity, spiritual growth, a transforming faith, and vital communities of justice and love. These resources are being developed out of a broad series of conversations that articulated a future direction for Unitarian Universalist religious growth and learning and denomination-wide focus groups which helped shape a program that would offer a variety of resources - downloadable, printed, viewable, interactive, and more – a religious growth and learning program for the twenty-first century. We’ll highlight the super resources in the Tapestry of Faith curriculum and discuss the Tapestry of Faith vision statement and how it can be a vision statement for lifespan faith development in your congregation.
