Ben Robins directs the fellowship’s programs for children and youth. He grew up in the Kingston Unitarian Fellowship and has a B.Ed. from Queen’s University with a focus on personalized learning. He is a newly-fellowshipped UU minister.
Ben believes that we can find the most meaning in life by centring our lives, and working to centre the world, on love, justice, community, and all the other good things.
We can nurture children’s drives to learn, grow, connect, explore, feel at home in the world and shape the world. We can help them figure out how things like love, justice, fairness, inclusion and empathy could show up more fully in their lives, their communities, and the larger world, and they can teach us a thing or two as well. We can have shared experiences of wonder and awe as we contemplate the cosmic mysteries of the universe, the diverse mysteries of life, the sacred mysteries of our inner worlds.
Love is good.
