New in Hands on Faith: An Interfaith Experience for Children
Do your children have classmates or neighbors preparing for a bar/bat mitzvah? Do they have friends who wear a hijab? Do they have grandparents, aunts or uncles who practice Buddhism or Hinduism? Has news from around the world prompted questions about other religions? Exposure to non-Christian religions is more and more common in America, and is part of the reason why interfaith education is important to older children.
These three part language cards explore some basic concepts about faith, religion, and religious tolerance. They include fact, belief, opinion, superstition, faith, monotheist, atheist, prejudice, religous freedom and more. Use these to make these important clarifications with your children ages nine and up for discussions of history, society, science and faith. Created by Montessorian Patricia Brown.

Hands on Buddhism includes the printed material and instructions to create stations allowing a group to experience eleven key aspects of Nichiren Buddhism. These may be explored in various settings – retreats, workshops, interfaith days, or religious education programs.
