Be an adult sponsor at a Youth Con this weekend or in February – it is an immersion into UU like nothing else! Adam and Eve find out about the natural world in this Talmudic interpretation by one of my favorite authors, Rabbi Sandy Sasso.
9 a.m. Preschool/Nursery– “Puppets were Babies Once” With Missy Perrine, teacher, Solymar Kneale, volunteer helper. How does it feel to be a “big kid” now?
9 a.m. Kindergarten – 6th Grade “Adam and Eve” – Evan and Teresa Kneale reflect on the book “Adam and Eve’s First Sunset” by Rabbi Sandy Sasso. This parable is based upon a Talmudic explication of the Old Testament story of Adam and Eve’s first night in the Garden of Eden in which God showed them flints to help them make fire that brought light into the darkness. Enlarging upon the story, Sasso emphasizes the first couple’s growing fear as the sun disappears, their realization that they have no control over the natural world, and their thankfulness when the sun returns in the morning. The story can spark discussion concerning awareness of and gratitude for the natural world around us.
