A Unitarian Universalist Adaptation of Jerome Berryman’s Godly Play co-developed by Rev. Dr. Nita Penfold, Rev. Ralph Roberts, and Beverly Leute Bruce. The Spirit Play method uses the Montessori approach and Berryman’s morning worship approach each Sunday morning. As in Montessori, the key elements are the prepared classroom environment and the teachers. These elements free the children to work at their own pace on their issues after an initial lesson or story within a safe and sacred structure shepherded by two adults.
