For the fall semester of Youth Formation, the Fig Youth will be using as our guide an amazing curriculum called Holy Troublemakers & Unconventional Saints by Daneen Akers. We will be exploring the lives of people of diverse faiths who have worked for love, compassion, and justice in every corner of the world, even if that meant rocking the religious boat.
- Bayard Rusin: What is Holy Troublemaking?
- Fr. Broderick Greer: Talking With Our Sacred Texts
- Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg: Loving God By Caring For God’s Creation
- Gustavo Gutierrez: Imitating Jesus
- Herb Montgomery: What If Jesus Came To Show Us How To Live?
- Kaitlin Curtice: Knowing Out Origin Story
- Thich Nhat Hanh: Being a Buddhist
- Maryam Molkara: Being True to Yourself Also Frees Others
- Rumi: Creating Through Grief
- Valarie Kaur: Practicing Revolutionary Love
- Rev. Will Gaffney: What is Your Favorite Word for God?
