A weekend with Melinda Wenner Bradley & Michael Gibson
Co-sponsored by Friends General Conference
Faith & Play™ is a Montessori-inspired resource that helps children find words and images for expressing the experiences of holy mystery and wonder in their lives. Using stories, tools, and methods from the very successful Godly Play®, Faith & Play™ was created by Quakers to add elements from Quaker faith and practice to core Bible stories.*
Learn and practice skills to help children explore the existential limits of their lives through wonder, play, and core stories scripted and tested to work well with multiage groups of children. Certified trainers will model the stories, and you will have opportunities to practice them with your peers.
*Faith & Play™ is a collaborative project of Friends General Conference and the Faith & Play Working Group of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting.
