A Joyful Path – Sample Lessons for Years One, Two and Three

 

ProgressiveChristianity.org has created groundbreaking spiritual children’s curriculum that celebrates a joy-filled life, compassion for all, and the wisdom within.

 
In A Joyful Path, Year One, lessons are based on the energy within, the body, the feeling, the heart nature, the will, god within all, the teachings of Jesus and other wisdom teachings, and the intellect.
 
InA Joyful Path Year Two, we explore the foundations of Progressive Christianity and the teachings of Jesus.
 
In A Joyful Path Year Three (Coming in July 2022!), we dive into the theme of: ALL LIFE IS SACRED, drawing upon the idea that a deep spiritual connection to Mother Earth provides a meaningful and life enhancing path toward wellness and wholeness. More specifically, Year Three is looking directly to Earth for the lessons She readily provides. As Jesus reminded us repeatedly, through parable and metaphor, nature and the life happening all around us continually teaches us what we are here to see and know is this life.

All Years include 38 full lessons with a section for the teacher, spiritual affirmations, Bible Verses, Wisdom Quotes, Movement and Art Activities, an original story, and discussion questions. Music and nature are gently woven into the lessons.
