The Complete Guide to Godly Play: Volume 3
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 and Play with stories about Quakers or with Quaker themes.
Volume 3 is themed for the Winter. Sessions include Twenty presentations based on stories about the Advent season and the feasts of Christmas and Epiphany, followed by the parables.
