Holidays and Holy Days - Spirit Play III is a Montessori-based program designed specifically for Unitarian Universalists. The program encourages students to explore creatively, think independently, and develop a sense of ritual and sacred space.
Spirit Play is less a class and more a way of learning and experiencing spirituality. Not only is the lesson meaningful, but every aspect of the class is imbued with sacred significance.
Holidays and Holy Days – Spirit Play III takes this approach to a classic curriculum. Through exploring the various celebrations and traditions of the world religions, children are introduced to the variety of beliefs, symbols, rituals, and stories. Each lesson is connected to an aspect of our Unitarian Universalist faith.
On a normal Sunday, Holidays and Holy Days - Spirit Play III students begin their morning in the Worship Service with the rest of the congregation. Students will hear the Opening Words, a song or two, the Story for All Ages, and then will leave for class during the Recessional Hymn.
Because Spirit Play is such a unique program, we provide a brief Family’s Guide to Spirit Play (pdf) to help families understand how the program works and the reasoning behind it.
