Our Whole Lives, Human Sexuality

Love is our Doctrine. Service is our prayer. Justice is our calling.


Our Whole Lives (OWL) is a series of sexuality education classes developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ that model and teach caring, compassion, respect, and justice. In an inclusive and developmentally appropriate manner, the OWL program addresses sensitive topics and supports open communication within families. It is a comprehensive curriculum, where every question is welcome. The program recognizes and respects the diversity of our participants.
