Stan Crow's Corner: Memories of Stan and Resources from Rite of Passage Journeys

a collection of articles, links, resources, etc

In loving memory of Stan Crow, 2/5/39 - 11/15/09

He was key to the development of the coming of age curriculum standard in UU churches today; his work is the basis of the rich teaching bundle that Rite of Passage Journeys offers through training and consulting work.

Rite of Passage Journeys has created a Legacy Fund in honor of Stan Crow's life work. Please read more about the Fund here. Or contribute to the Stan Crow Legacy Fund today to help us further disseminate his life work.

Journeys has also been collecting memories of Stan on our website. Please send your memory of Stan and his work at Journeys, to us.

We'll post it with all our other Memories of Stan right away.

The impact of Stan's legacy is infinite.  He had a heart that was bigger than life.  Through his unassuming, always-available mentorship of young people, he raised generations of empowered and inspired adults.  Through his absolute confidence in each of us, he helped many find their paths.  And through his vision, he leaves communities that will continue to serve and gather even in his absence.  That these will continue without Stan is a testament to his real leadership and mentorship gift--with Stan, each of us knew that we could do far more than we thought we could.

Stan, we love you and will miss you.  Thank you for blessing our lives.

We at Journeys wish to offer this forum for the Rite of Passage Journeys community, and the wider community, to post stories of Stan, stories that we can collect and preserve as part of his history, and the history of Journeys.  You can share your memories here, and we'll post them right away.  Over the coming weeks and months, we will work make this space more user-friendly.  There's also a place to post wishes for the family and more general thoughts on his church's website, on a Stan Crow Memorial Page.  The page here on the Journeys site is for this special piece of his life and legacy--mentoring youth, adults, and elders through life transitions, and all the lives he touched through this work.

We will also continue to collect more and more of Stan's work.  He left behind a full office and many papers, and we look forward to sharing more of his legacy with the wider community.  Part of our mission at Rite of Passage Journeys is to educate individuals and organizations about the what, why, and how of rites of passage.  We will continue to have these resources here, at Stan's Corner.
