Este pequeño y atractivo folleto ayuda a los niños a encontrar su camino hacia la reunión cuáquera para la adoración. Con colores intensos y relajantes, el folleto utiliza imágenes de un jardín para ilustrar los diferentes aspectos del culto cuáquero. Una solapa en la contraportada desafía a los lectores jóvenes a encontrar imágenes ocultas dentro de la historia. Este libro puede usarse como un punto de partida para conversar con los niños sobre la adoración a la manera de los Amigos, y también como un enfoque para ayudar a los niños a centrarse durante la Reunión de Adoración. La edición QREC incluye texto en español e inglés en cada página y se ofrece en dos versiones, una para reuniones de Amigos no programadas y otra para reuniones de Amigos programadas.

This engaging little booklet helps children find their way into Quaker meeting for worship. With rich, calming colors, the booklet uses images from a garden to illustrate the different aspects of Quaker worship. A flap on the back cover challenges young readers to find hidden pictures within the story. This book can be used as a starting point for conversation with children about worship in the manner of Friends, and also as a focus to help children center during Meeting for Worship. The QREC edition includes Spanish and English text on each page and is offered in two versions, one for unprogrammed and the other for programmed Friends meetings.

An Introduction

The Quaker Religious Education Collaborative (QREC) is an international, cross-branch, grassroots network of Friends sharing a stewardship for lifelong Quaker faith formation through religious education. We formed in April 2014 and now serve more than 300 Friends in our network. We actively engage and support each other across languages and continents. We gather for regional and annual conferences and offer monthly Conversation Circles via an online conferencing platform.

Steering Circle

We share leadership as part of our collaborative mission, making decisions using the Quaker ‘sense of the meeting’ process, sitting in expectant, worshipful waiting for the emergence of shared truth. Read more…

Working Circles

Our work  takes place in ‘circles’ or small groups of Friends who labor on a common task, usually meeting by video conference due to the geographic diversity of the membership. Read more…

Faith at Home

Home is the heart of faith formation for all families. This is especially true for Friends. As an experiential religion, Quakerism is best learned through living in loving community. Indeed, the vast majority of faith formation for our young Friends happens at home in the busy swirl of daily life.
