The Complete Guide to Godly Play: Volume 2
Godly Play® was created by Rev. Dr. Jerome Berryman and his wife Thea Berryman. Its origins are in the Episcopal Church, although its reach today is ecumenical. Friends use this resource and method to teach stories from the Bible. Bible material is presented in a way that invites children to experientially find themselves in the stories and makes space for continuous revealing of Truth. While we might not use all these stories in a Quaker First Day School program, this helps many Friends to see this as a welcoming and Quaker-friendly way to approach the Bible and the Judeo-Christian heritage.
Godly Play® has also been adapted by Quakers in the resource Faith & Play® with stories about Quakers or with Quaker themes.
In this volume Jerome Berryman has gathered together the presentations that form the suggested cycle of lessons for Fall.
In this volume you'll find all the information you need to present the fall lessons of Godly Play. The simple format of the lessons presented in The Complete Guide to Godly Play will enable all teachers, whether new or experienced, to find the information they need to enter fully into the most rewarding play we share: Godly Play.
