And I guess I should have said, I'm Pat Kahn, I'm in the Faith Development Office. I'm off-site staff, calling from Atlanta, Georgia, and person that you first saw is Susan Lawrence, who is also our Managing Editor of the Faith Development Office and she'll be doing tech behind the scenes. We are going to get started, and I'm going to also turn my camera off so you're focused on all the important people. And here you go, Elizabeth.

And now, without further ado, we'll share some stories of naming race in religious education. And I've just asked some of my phenomenal colleagues to tell a little bit about what happened, any insights or lessons that they learned, best practices that they want to share, and then to reflect a little bit on how this has impacted their own identity because we know this work is about our own faith formation and spiritual path in addition to how we serve as religious educators, And now I'll introduce our first panelist, Lauren Wyeth, who is the Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministries in Minneapolis, and she's going to share a story of leadership and answering the call. Lauren.

More recently, this last Doctor Martin Luther King Sunday, I was again with second through fifth graders, and a congregant came up with an activity for us to do where we each traced our hand and wrote something that we could do with our own two hands to change the world. The mistake I made-- it was not the first time I made this same mistake-- we didn't talk about race explicitly to start the conversation.

And we got tons of hands with things about recycling and taking care of our friends, and taking care of animals, and all kinds of things that kids can do to change the world that really has nothing to do with race, racism, racial justice, and here it was Doctor Martin Luther King Jr Sunday. So again, a reminder to me that if we're going to talk about race, we've got to be the ones to start the conversation. Can't count on the kids to take the first step.

So my story-- I'm supposed to press a button, I have a little graphic that goes. A couple years ago, my first year as DRE, I was planning a service learning trip with our senior youth that 20 of our kids had jumped in to participate with. In part because it was a really exciting trip. We were going to be traveling to Belize in Central America to work with an organization called Sustainable Harvest International.

JAMIL SCOTT: Absolutely. You know, when I first arrived at this congregation this year, there was a desire by the religious education team, and many of the parents, to really address what was happening in the news and talk about Black Lives Matter, and et cetera. And our congregation has made a commitment to working with and have great relationships with a lot of the leaders-- mostly women, mostly African-American women-- in the area regarding Black Lives Matter, and our congregation does a lot of justice work but some of that doesn't carry over into the other part of our program.

The first thing we touched on was, what was their feeling about our sign being damaged? And to my surprise, they were all in the exact same head space that I was and emotional space I was. They were angry, they were upset, they were confused, across the board and I noticed, especially, some of our children of color, that at first being very silent and not wanting to speak up, and then, being given that space, they were able to speak up more.

It happened that we had these very empowered youth processes going on and that something that happened with-- without getting into details-- something had happened that seemed to silence, or that silenced, the voices of our youth of color. And had not been for the-- first of all, the acknowledgement of folks like Kenny Wiley, and also the comfort of those persons of color to then walk up to these people of color who were in power, had it not been for that, this transformation would not have happened where they said, no, this is not OK. We're going to caucus, decide exactly what we need to do, and come out and stand up for ourselves, and speak our truth to the whole community, and transform the con.

It was emotional for everyone there. But I think we cannot underestimate the importance of really encouraging people of color to take religious, professional positions, like DRE, like ministers. And if we don't have it, inviting them in when we're talking about these things, right? Particularly with our children and youth because there's a comfort level that a person of color might-- sometimes it's just a bridge. It's just to be able to at least speak up for the first time, that they will have with a person of color who was in leadership that they won't have with someone who looks different from them.

Next month, we'll continue our meet the UUA series with Meet the Stewardship and Development Office. And in April, we will hear from the ministry team in the Charlottesville congregation who are doing radical shared ministry. That first radical was off, I'll add that back to the slide. So you can go to the URL that's on the screen right now and sign up now for any of those webinars. 041b061a72
