The Fahs Collaborative Laboratory for Innovation in Faith Formation is a feisty cohort of religious educators who support people in living meaningful, socially conscious, and spiritually grounded lives. Our aim is to dismantle theological and cultural walls that divide the human family; promote alternative approaches to outmoded thinking, teaching, and learning strategies; and bring our creativity and social imagination to sticky problems that keep us from flourishing.
Sophia Lyon Fahs was an early 20th-century Unitarian religious educator who pushed the boundaries of institutional religious life. She asserted that the church’s function is “to teach us how to put religious and ethical qualities into all kinds of experience,” and said that transforming education for the future of faith is our “great work.” The Fahs Collaborative continues Fahs’s legacy. We bring together unlikely actors and new ideas, developing resources and practices that deepen faith, build resilience, honor diversity, and strengthen communities. Our work is to help faith transform lives and the world we share—for good. Together, we are forging the future of faith formation.
Join us in the good work of aligning the dreams of your heart with educational practices that heal the world.
