Faith & Play Training for Quakers
This powerful way of being with children can transform your First Day 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
Times: Friday 7–9 p.m.; Saturday 8:30 a.m.–7:30pm; Sunday 1:00 p.m.–4 p.m.
Cost: $40 per person, payable to Friends Meeting at Cambridge. Includes fee for training and hospitality at FMC. Funding to make the training possible at this reduced cost comes from Salem Quarter and Wellesley Meeting.
