 The function of the church is to teach us how to put religious and ethical qualities into all kinds of experience.

Sophia Lyon Fahs

The Fahs Collaborative offers a catalogue of curricula and professional development resources that support learning that makes a difference for individuals and groups.   As mounting evidence suggests that our worn-out, traditional paths are re-creating yesterday’s problems, we respond by assembling unlikely partners to create practices that transform ordinary life experiences into something inspiriting and nurturing.  Explore our menu of learning encounters and join what Sophia Fahs called “the good work.”  

Beloved Conversations:  Meditations on Race and Ethnicity

A small-group, spiritually focused curriculum for exploring the role of race/ethnicity in individual and congregational lives. Companion curricula consider the intersection of race and wealth, race and parenting, and race/ethnicity through the lens of the experience of youth and young adults.  

Fahs Research Fellows

Educational entrepreneurs who research and propose innovative solutions to challenges in faith formation practices. Their projects are available to implement in congregations and other communities. 

Sophia Fahs Sunday

A resource kit for developing multi-generational faith communities through worship, music, and liturgy.  

We Who Defy Hate

A practical guide to prepare participants for multi-faith engagement on shared social justice work.  

Creating Theology Together (Available in Fall 2018) 

Brings the faithful together to explore and engage theological commitments as a grounding for action in the world.  

 

In addition to the above curricula, the Fahs Collaborative also offers a Curriculum Incubator to help innovators develop new faith formation approaches. These commissioned gatherings, hosted by Fahs Collaborative staff, build educational responses to difficult learning problems.
