I am looking to re-start the Adult Religious Education program at my (fairly small) church. I'm looking to start with the Tapestry of Life materials.
Some of the phrasing, while I can see that it is looking to be inclusive of those with theistic and nontheistic beliefs, makes me cringe or eyeroll. Has anyone worked with ARE materials before? If you strip out all of the supernatural language (including the stuff about energy flowing through a group or spirit of life), does your workshop size shrink?
And, have you ever taught an ARE program solo. Most of the Tapestry courses seem pretty insistent on at least two teachers, although the activities don't seem to require two leaders.
