In most of our congregations, regular children's worship is often held during a portion of the adult service. We seek to teach our children to be responsible for their own thinking and to nurture their own impulses of reverence, morality, respect for others, and self-respect. Are all religions similar in moral principles? Not if they exclude others based on a creed. Every person has inherent worth and dignity. Above all we inspire our children to live lives based on our moral principles. Remembering the words of Rev. Donner Lohnes:
The final definition of a truly moral person is the world that a person of principle creates for our children to inherit.
For more than two centuries the philosophy of Unitarian Universalist Religious Education has been based on our Principles and Purposes, as well as on the following words:
