The Fahs Collaborative offers a catalogue of curricula and professional development resources that support learning that makes a difference for individuals and groups. As mounting evidence suggests that our worn-out, traditional paths are recreating yesterday’s problems, we respond by assembling unlikely partners to create practices that transform ordinary life experiences into something inspiriting and nurturing. Explore our menu of learning encounters and join what Sophia Fahs called “the good work.”  

Beloved Conversations: Meditations on Race and Ethnicity

A small-group, spiritually focused curriculum for exploring the role of race/ethnicity in individual and congregational lives. Companion curricula consider the intersection of race and wealth, race and parenting, and race/ethnicity through the lens of the experience of youth and young adults.  

Gathering Our Selves (Available Fall 2020)

Gathering Our Selves is a catalogue of reflective spiritual exercises designed explicitly for Unitarian Universalists of color. A diversity of resources offer strategies for engaging children, youth, adults of color as well as mixed/multi-racial persons and families who are interested in understanding their experience and impact of race and ethnicity in their spiritual lives. As the experience of race and racism is often located in the body, the curriculum uses the arts — literary prose, scholarship, music, theater, crafting, embodied movement, photography, etc. — as vehicles for sparking discussion and connection. Resource materials are appropriate for individual work, small group gatherings, and larger retreats. Learning materials are designed by lay and religious professionals of color whose lived experiences span the diaspora of global expressions of race and ethnicity.

In addition to the above curricula, the Fahs Collaborative also offers a Curriculum Incubator to help innovators develop new faith formation approaches. These commissioned gatherings, hosted by Fahs Collaborative staff, build educational responses to difficult learning problems.
