1 Hour Tutorial on “Holy Troublemakers & Unconventional Saints” Curriculum
September 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
One hour curriculum tutorial on “Holy Troublemakers & Unconventional Saints”
Lucinda Megill Legendre, on behalf of the Racial Justice Initiative of the PSEC, will be offering a curriculum tutorial/ training.
This 12-lesson digital companion curriculum are designed for middle-grade children with activity options for younger and older participants. The lessons are designed to introduce children to the concepts of holy troublemaking as modeled by the people profiled in the book, Holy Troublemakers & Unconventional Saints, from diverse faiths, who worked for love, compassion, and justice, even when that rocked the religious boat. These lessons ask questions such as: What is holy and good trouble? What is not? What lessons can we learn from those who have gone before on this path? How do we keep our joy and inner peace while working for a world where all can flourish? What might my contribution be?

Some of the thirty-six “Holy Troublemakers” featured in the book range from Rumi, Harriet Tubman, Florence Nightingale to more modern folks like Thich Nhat Hanh, Rachel Held Evans, Brian McLaren, Rev. Wil Gafney and Fred Rogers, just to name a few.
There are three licenses available with corresponding pricing based on the size of your congregation. The lessons are written for either in-person or online, in church settings, or at home. They even offer a free digital version for whom funds are a challenge.
