Faith & Play: Quaker Stories for Friends Trained in the Godly Play(r) Method: Second Edition
In this revised and expanded edition of Faith & Play(TM) Quaker Stories for Friends Trained in the Godly Play(R) Method, stories published before 2015 have been revised based on experience and feedback, and new stories have been added along with additional supplementary materials developed to support storytellers.
Faith & Play(TM) is a story-based curriculum focused on building spiritual community with children and offering them images and language to express their wonder and experience of the Divine. Faith & Play(TM) grew out of Friends' work with the Godly Play(R) story curriculum, which embodies the Montessori belief that play is children's work and has dignity.
These curricula support continuing revelation; multiple perspectives on a story; silence, reflection, and corporate sharing as valuable components of the spiritual life; and the diversity of ways the Spirit works within each person. While the Godly Play stories used by Friends are based on the Bible, Faith & Play stories include Quaker faith, practice and witness, as well as some Bible content told in ways that reflect Quaker sensibilities.
Faith & Play stories are meant to be used in conjunction with Godly Play and we do not recommend using either resource without adequate training.
