Spiritual Deepening Library: Using the Materials in Your Meeting

In each Spiritual Deepening Library topic, you'll find a number of activities for adults and children to go deeper together, as well as intergenerational and all-ages exercises.  These materials offer your meeting an opportunity for members, attenders, and newcomers to build spiritual community as you explore Quaker thought and practices and deepen your spiritual journeys together.  The Library offers the content but leaves it up to you to decide how and when to use it.

Spiritual Deepening Library: Content

The Spiritual Deepening Library materials are designed for participants of all ages and stages in their spiritual journey.  Participants engage in activities, discussions, role-plays, spiritual practices, art and music exercises, and worship sharing.  The content has been compiled and developed by Friends throughout the U.S. and Canada and includes materials drawn from high quality existing curricula and resources, as well as newly developed activities.

Children’s Bibles

QuakerBooks of Friends General Conference carries a number of children’s story Bibles. None of them pretend to be Bibles, per se. Rather, they are severely edited retellings in language appropriate for children. They are quite different, and appropriate for different age levels. In this article I will comment on seven children’s Bibles and provide selections from each so that you can gain a sense of their style, age appropriateness, and approach. We will look at how the different authors treat some of the same passages, such as the creation story in Genesis.
