Religion in the Context of Everyday Life: Sophia Lyon Fahs – free class in Camp Springs, MD

August 25, 2010

Wed Aug 25, 7:30 – 9 PM, What Moves Us: Unitarian Universalis Theology adult education class.

This month’s topic: Religion in the Context of Everyday Life: Sophia Lyon Fahs

We’ll move into the 20th century and consider the work of Sophia Lyon Fahs, a pioneering religious educator who helped transform the UU approach to learning about religion.

Sophia Fahs drew from a philosophy of religious naturalism that considered how religious impulses express themselves in the context of everyday life. She believed that human beings are by nature religious creatures, but we sometimes don’t recognize these impulses for what they are.

In this session, we’ll consider how her philosophy of religious education continues to affect us today.
