Girls Experience Religion in Life

New Jersey's Mercer Space reports that ten local girls recently completed the Religion in Life program at the Unitarian Universalist Church at Washington Crossing. Religion in Life, the Unitarian Universalist Association’s religious award program designed for Girl Scouts but open to all girls, has more than 40 requirements involving religious study, service, and self-exploration. The girls’ activities included learning about religious diversity by visiting Masjidut-Taqwa, a mosque in Trenton; conducting an accessibility survey of the Unitarian Universalist Church at Washington Crossing building; and hearing of the Depression-era Girl Scout experiences of Newtown resident Ruth Samsel.
