The Complete Guide to Godly Play: Volume 6
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.
This volume consists of 15 enrichment presentations to be integrated with Volume 2, Presentations for Fall.
The key people whose stories are told in this volume enrich and extend the core narrative, which tells how the People of God sought the elusive presence of God.
In this volume Jerome Berryman has gathered together fifteen enrichment presentations to be integrated with Volume 2.
Introduce these new presentations to the children when they are ready for more. When will that be? Our experience has shown that if children have Godly Play form at an early age, they will be ready for more at about age seven, but every child is different and therefore every circle of children is different. It is recommended that these lessons not be used until after the core lessons of Volumes 2, 3, and 4 have been told for a minimum of 2-3 years. A fluency in the core stories helps enhance the use of the Volume 6 lessons as they are used to deepen the meaning of the core stories.
