Religious Education Resources for the Holidays


November 13 & 15:
Friendly Resources for the Holiday Season

As the Christmas season approaches, we're bombarded with messages from the world around us. How can we, in Friends meetings and schools, help Quaker families and children celebrate the season in a spirit of joy and simplicity? Join the conversation to share and learn about resources for the holidays with your Quaker religious education colleagues.

Facilitator: Sita Diehl, QREC Steering Circle, Madison (WI) Friends Meeting, Northern Yearly Meeting

Queries for the Conversation:
