HEALTHY WHOLE INSPIRED
Faith Development Week
JULY 18-25 2020
STAR ISLANDIsles of Shoals, NH
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Faith Development Week on Star Island is a week-long conference aimed at renewal, UU education, spiritual exploration, and an opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues in a setting designed for meaningful connection. FDW is family friendly with all ages worship, morning and afternoon programming for children and youth, and fun planned activities for everyone!
Why Did we change our name from Lifespan Religious Education Week to Faith Development Week? Quite simply, we knew our conference would benefit all kinds of people not just religious educators and wanted our “brand” to be as inclusive as possible. Our priorities are the same: cutting edge, high quality educational programming on an island setting that fosters community based on UU principles.
Our Planning Inspiration for 2020: “Community Means Strength” by Starhawk
We are all longing to go home to some place
we have never been—a place half-remembered and half-envisioned
we can only catch glimpses of from time to time.
Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion
without having the words catch in our throats.
Somewhere a circle of hands
will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter,
voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power.
Community means strength
that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done.
Arms to hold us when we falter.
A circle of healing.
A circle of friends.
Someplace where we can be free.
