Tamara Lebak said this best at a GA workshop a few years agoI would continually ask myself: What's the $10 word for? What do I want to say, and how can I say it so that it is relevant to everyone? Mention SMOG (simplified measure of gobbledygook  HYPERLINK "http://www.harrymclaughlin.com/SMOG.htm" http://www.harrymclaughlin.com/SMOG.htm.) Also, applies to music. Consider using easier arrangements of familiar hymns. Come Sing a Song with Me: A Songbook for All Ages.  HYPERLINK "http://www.uuabookstore.org/productdetails.cfm?PC=894" http://www.uuabookstore.org/productdetails.cfm?PC=894 Be Concrete. Importance of readings, meditations, stories/sermons being concrete, not abstract (toothpaste worship rather than sermon on how we can't take back our words once they are out). Keep It Moving. Participation by whole the whole person and the entire congregation at worship (calling out responses, sharing thoughts, adding objects to worship table or other central gathering place). Also includes pacing. Run through the service at least once with participants to avoid awkward moments. Explain Each Part of the Service. Be attentive to transitions. Now we're going to; this is why we; For Unitarian Universalists, its important that we (also good for newcomers as well). Use introduction to hymns as an example. Now as we prepare ourselves for a moment of silence and reflection, let us ask the Spirit of Life to move in our hearts by singing one of the best-loved hymns in Unitarian Universalism. Between the Lines Songbook: Sources for Singing the Living Tradition  HYPERLINK "http://www.uuabookstore.org/productdetails.cfm?PC=563" http://www.uuabookstore.org/productdetails.cfm?PC=563 Keep it Short. (The sermon that is). The briefer the better when it comes to sermons. If you must have longer elements, think in terms of chunking them/breaking into smaller segments. Consider How We Learn. Multiple learning styles, add visuals, connections between people, engaging all five senses. (Review learning styles: Intelligences include visual-spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, musical, inter- and intrapersonal, linguistic, logical-mathematical, naturalistic, and spiritual.)  HYPERLINK "http://www.thirteen.org/edonline/concept2class/mi/index.html" http://www.thirteen.org/edonline/concept2class/mi/index.html Avoid a Need to Read. When it comes to participation, avoid parts which require reading ability (helpful to both oldest and youngest members of congregation plus many in between), using litanies or call-backs instead of responsive readings and familiar songs with words which are easily picked up. (Hymns and songs for children's and intergenerational worship as well as junior choir use:  HYPERLINK "http://archive.uua.org/re/reach/fall01/worship/recommended_gifts_for_children_and_youth.html" http://archive.uua.org/re/reach/fall01/worship/recommended_gifts_for_children_and_youth.html.) Think Layers. Offer elements with multiple levels of meaning on your theme, like the layers of an onion which can be peeled away, adults will be able to get at the very heart of it, while children may only graze the surface (great example of this was worship at GA where in between verbal presentation of variety of ways the Golden Rule appears in many religious traditions was the singing of the song Many windows, one light, many waters, one seaall lifted hearts are free.) Use Different People of All Ages. Involve people of all ages in different elements of the service: chalice lighting, offering, etc.; consider who is seen and whose voices are heard; ways of sharing beyond joys and concerns. Family choir. Provide Tools for Parents. Include some reflective questions in the order of service to take home (and perhaps time in service for parents to explain); questions for adults and for children of varying ages, to stimulate discussion, perhaps within the context of the sermon (appeals to the interpersonal learning style).

What should the Sunday morning experience include for children? A. What I would like to see kids get on Sunday morning: I would like to know that every week, when a child walks out the door, she is at least a little glad she came. I would like an adult who is not a child's parent to ask him how his week has been. I would like him to have a little something to eat with a friend. I would like each child who comes to walk out with one little spark of thought she didn't have when she came in. I would like her to be called by her name by someone outside of her immediate family. I would like him to hear the words "Unitarian Universalist" at least once. I would like them to see at least one candle lit and hear at least one song sung. If all these things happen every week for every child, we will have succeeded. When we spend our time teaching, our goals should be focused on these simple things. If we plan engaging, enjoyable classes, with a lot of room for enjoying the fact we are in this community, most of these things will be accomplished. 0>?A  > ? @ L s u v w !
