CURIOSITY: moving from fear to open-heartedness
“It wasn’t curiosity itself that killed the proverbial cat. What really got him in trouble was his inability to deal with the new situation he was in. And when it comes to learning about new environments, curiosity is key.” Kate Berardo
“Curiosity killed the cat, but where human beings are concerned, the only thing a healthy curiosity can kill is ignorance.” Harry Lorayne
One major goal of Unitarian Universalist religious education is to instill curiosity in our children in order that they might learn and grow in a community of friendly seekers. It is only through knowledge and experience that any of us can overcome our fears and ignorance and move towards inclusiveness and empathy. We strive to fulfill this goal in everything we do in RE.
