We started attending a Friends (Quaker) Meeting this fall and we just love it. It's a non-credal religion, so lots of viewpoints are accepted but the main emphasis is on peace, simplicity, equality and the "Light within" all people.
We just love our meeting house - beautiful old wooden buildings. They don't have a nursery or lots of beeping, plastic toys (like most of the other churches we've attended) just some wooden blocks and tons of art supplies. While the adults are in meeting ( a silent hour of meditation) the children hear a story acted out with little dolls or puppets and then have free time to create with the art supplies. The basic program is called Godly Play and is based on Montessori actually, but works well with Waldorf's emphasis on storytelling and free play.
We really love this meeting, the people are very gentle and there is even another mama who cloth diapered her kids! (rare in this area).
We really liked our local UU church too, but the nursery/kids area was just not for us - all electronic toys, very crowded room, etc.
Hope you find a place where you feel at home!
Even though I have not been a mother very long, I have grown up with Waldorf friends, and have been rooted in Waldorf ways for most of my life. I have not gone to church in about 10 years because I feel lost and have found other resources to stay in touch with my spiritual side, but I went to church Christmas eve and we realized that we want to be a part of some form of organized religion.
What church or place of worship do you belong to where you find Waldorf philosophies seem to fit well?
