As more parents identify themselves as unaffiliated, secular, interfaith, spiritual or nonorthodox, their children may be facing some challenges in seeking information on God and religion. What should a parent say when his or her child asks about God? 

The Lake Shore Unitarian Society takes on this question and more at its upcoming panel presentation. The discussion will cover reasons behind children’s curiosity with the existence of God and some thoughtful and appropriate ways to answer their questions based on their delicate psychology. The panelists will also provide insight on topics such as creating an open dialogue about God with children at different stages of childhood, discussing various religions and convictions including atheism, and providing accessible options for religious education or exploration without biased imposition. 

Dr. Sally Hoit, Clinical Psychologist and North Shore Parent, Rabbi Ari Moffic, Director of the Interfaith Family Network, Dr. Scott Paeth, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at DePaul University and more will be on the panel to explore these topics and answer your questions. 

The Panel discussion is being organized by Lake Shore Unitarian Society, settled in the heart of North Shore for more than 50 years supporting spirituality, knowledge, music and social justice. The Panel event is being co-sponsored by Spiritual Playdate and DePaul University Department of Religious Studies. 

This event is open to public and free of charge. All are welcome!
