YRE Recap: "Asking Questions"

Today's lesson centered around the 4th UU Principle, which is the idea that every person is free to search for what is true and right in life. We discussed the terms 'free', 'responsible', 'truth', and 'meaning' to arrive at a better understanding of this principle, and played Twenty Questions to exemplify the idea of those searches. We learned about fellow Unitarian Maria Mitchell, who was the first female astronomer, and her unusual education and training that allowed and encouraged her to ask questions. At the end of our lesson, each student wrote down two questions on index cards, ranging from 'What is Grammy's middle name?' to 'Why does the moon glow?', and will receive a prize if they bring their cards back with answers. :)
