Compass Points will lead its young adolescent participants on a year long spiritual journey during which they will have opportunities:
- To sort out their feelings about themselves and their world as they do the difficult work of starting to create their adult selves
- To discover what they believe about life’s big questions-the nature of humanity and the divine, beliefs about death and faith
- To think independently; assume responsibility, make decisions, explore values and adopt the practice of radical hospitality ·
- To acquire enough background in Unitarian Universalist history, polity and theology that they can know and express what Unitarian Universalism stands for
- To share the above with the adult congregation, which often knows even less about Unitarian Universalism than do children in religious education programs
- To understand that religious liberty is a hard-won legacy that continues to need protection
