We Make the Road With Kids is a 52-week curriculum for a year-long family trek through the Bible, following its overarching storyline as laid out in Brian McLaren’s We Make the Road by Walking. We started this because we wanted to induct our children (12, 9, and 2) into our love for the Bible, and into a kind of Christian faith that we think is worth believing in. Our weekly after-dinner conversations include Scripture readings, watching some YouTube, an extremely short “teaching” section (Don’t worry, each week’s lesson includes a ‘script’ for this) — all of it based on McLaren’s chapter, but adapted for shorter attention spans obsessed with pop culture.
If you want a feel for how we approach the Bible, watch this sample video from our family conversation about Joshua (You know, because it’s such an easy text):
Much of these lessons is laid out in the form of YouTube playlists and links to materials already out there, so it’s all free, and you also have the ability to rearrange the material as you see fit to suit the message you want to send your kids.
At the link above, you can view the archives (All 52 weeks) and/or subscribe to the mailing list. Also, if you’re interested, if you message me on Facebook, I can invite you to our Top-Secret Facebook Group of parents and teachers who are using these materials with kids at home and in church. You and I will have to be “friends” before Facebook will let me invite you to the group, but if you want to de-friend me once you’re in, I promise not to take it personally. https://www.facebook.com/john.d.stonecypher
