Playful props from a Renaissance Module training in the New England Region.

Looking for a mini-Leadership School experience on a specific topic filled with practical tools, perspective, inspiration and camaraderie?  A Renaissance module may be for you and your team (it’s always more fun and more effective to go with a team!)

Renaissance modules are not just for religious educators! Ministers, seminarians, and lay leaders are welcome to attend. Please note that the
(newly revised) Worship modules are intentionally co-led by a religious educator and a minister.

And several Renaissance modules have been added to the UUA calendar. Info about the module reader and how to register is posted on the calendar listing.

Here are modules starting in January and February so that you don’t miss the registration deadlines.
