faiths for a future

with a strong environmental focus, this book of the popular down-to-earth training sessions for teachers, run by the religious education and environment programme (reep), provides a range of information and classroom activities for teachers. interfaith & environmental. very compatible with becoming me. order here.


united religions initiative

an extensive resource pack especially for anyone interested in promoting interfaith understanding with children.

 

the amazing creation studio

this vacation church school program written by rev. diane venzera, and available through the association of unity churches, encourages creativity and group interaction. the lessons provide opportunities for children to experience their own process of creation from the conception of the idea to the final completed project.   when we are aware of the steps involved in this process we can take a more active role in choosing experiences that reflect who we really are - divine children of god.
