Godly Play®

Godly Play®, created by Episcopal priest Jerome Berryman, is an experiential and open-ended approach to teaching the Bible to children.  Many Quakers have found Godly Play® to be beautifully Quaker-friendly. 

Four volumes in the six-volume series contain over 65 stories.  The remaining two volumes are filled with practical aids for teachers.  Only a scant handful of the stories are generally ill-adapted to Friends settings since they deal with sacraments and such things as the colors of the church year.  All story scripts include drawings of story materials and directions for the storyteller’s movements. 

Godly Play® resources are available from QuakerBooks of FGC.  Call 1-800-966-4556, e-mail bookstore@fgcquaker.org or order online.
