This training has online components on Sundays on Zoom (September 18 through October 16) and an in-person component October 28 through 30 at Powell House Retreat Center in Old Chatham, New York.

This powerful way of being with children can transform your religious education
program for children, and nurture your own spiritual life. Learn and practice skills to
help children explore the existential limits of their lives through wonder, play, and
core stories from the Bible and Quaker faith and practice. Discussions include:

  • exploring the spirituality of children
  • considering the “unspoken” lessons of the teaching space and classroom structure
  • supporting the circle of children and working with multiage groups and diverse needs; using stories in multigenerational settings
  • weaving Godly Play/Faith & Play stories into a children’s program with other religious education resources for Friends.
