Our five children participating in The UU Coming of Age Program spent the weekend in the big city of Denver. They visited the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and particularly enjoyed the robotics exhibition. Dinner was all-you-can-eat “healthy” restaurant,which was wildly popular. The TRUU group bonded with the the seven Denver First Unitarian Coming of Age group, and listened to them practice reading their credos. This was followed by very energetic games in the church basement until late that evening. Sunday morning the Denver church served a delicious breakfast, followed by a focused and productive Coming of Age class led by Nicolette Toussaint, where the TRUU group outlined their own credos. Then they attended an inspirational First Unitarian service incorporating Coming of Age and Bridging ceremonies. Bridging is for young adults moving out of high school. The children were wildly exuberant middle schoolers, except when they needed to be focused and mature, when they rose to the occasion admirably. Special thanks to the parents and mentors who spent the weekend with them: Heather Rydell, Greg Rydell, Nicolette Toussaint, Anne Cerrone, Garry Zabel, and Asha Ironwood. And thanks to all the parents and mentors who supported the process! A fantastic weekend was had by all.
