Faith & Play‚Ñ¢ is a Montessori-inspired storytelling resource that helps children find words and images for expressing their experiences of holy mystery and wonder in their lives. Play is children‚Äôs practice, hence the name Faith & Play, deriving from Faith and Practice.
Faith & Play includes stories of Quaker faith, practice and witness, told in the manner of Godly Play¬Æ (a resource to teach stories from the Bible in an open-ended way that invites children to experientially find themselves in the stories). Godly Play and Faith & Play acknowledge that God is active in children‚Äôs lives long before they enter the religious education classroom, and at the core of this method is a deep respect for children‚Äôs spiritual lives. Participants hear and respond to the stories in age appropriate ways, making the method ideal for meetings with grade-level classrooms as well as for small meetings where few children are in diverse places developmentally.
Faith & Play was created by the Faith & Play Group to serve as a Quaker supplement to Godly Play, and is intended for the teacher trained in the Godly Play method.
