Planning Religious Education Programming for Children During COVID-19

As Quaker meetings and churches throughout North America continue their discernment around holding worship online for the foreseeable future or offering in-person worship with social distancing measures in place (or even a combination of both), Friends may also be considering how to resume or proceed with religious education programming for children and youth. Alongside careful planning for safety, and the flexibility to shift our plans, we have an opportunity in this disrupted time to imagine something new that might reach more people and connect us as all-age spiritual communities.

A Conversation on Grief, Death, and Dying: A Resource for Friends during COVID-19


Part One released April 22nd, 2020, Part Two and Bonus Track released May 7th, 2020.

As the COVID-19 infection rate continues to climb, and people we care about become ill or lose their lives as a result of the pandemic, FGC decided to talk to three Quaker chaplains about grief, death, and dying.

In this first episode of a two-part limited series, the chaplains talk about how COVID-19 has drastically transformed their work, and suggestions for what to say (and what not to say) to a person who has lost a loved one due to the novel coronavirus.
