Our Whole Lives

If you could have received only two or three messages about sexuality as a 10 or 11 year old, what would they have been? This word cloud gives an idea what last Sunday’s group of parents in OWL (Our Whole Lives lifespan sexuality education program) came up with for their own 10 and 11 year olds. “Take your time, there’s no rush.” “Consent is key.” “No matter what you think or feel, you are not alone.” “All good relationships have respect at the core.” The UUBC Board and congregation committed to OWL as a social justice offering to UUBC families and members of the community in 2016. This is the first time the program has been offered by the congregation. The course focuses on self-worth, sexual health, responsibility, and justice and inclusivity. http://www.uua.org/re/owl
