Sermons are posted here, too!

I have decided to post sermons on this blog, as posting on church websites can be spotty, and I have served as “supply” (substitute) in a number of different places this summer. I hope this is useful both to Godly Play practitioners and to others who ask for copies.

It’s not completely irrelevant, as my work with Godly Play is what drew me deeper into the Word and the Great Story in which we all move and live and have our being. Over the years, engagement with the stories and wonder about God led me to seminary and to ordination in the Episcopal Church. Not much of my preaching explicitly mentions Godly Play, but all of it is informed by the practice of going deeper into the story and daring to ask questions of the text, always seeking the core metaphor and the essential meaning for today — all familar to Godly Players!  

About threegreatdays

The Rev. Dr. Rosemary Beales is a Godly Play Trainer in the U.S.; an Episcopal Priest; Chaplain at St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School in Alexandria, Virginia; a Godly Play Practitioner since 1996; and a mother and grandmother. Every day I get to be with 400 children at school and on weekends when I'm lucky, with my four terrific grandsons and three lively granddaughters. As a Godly Play practitioner, I want to spread the word about this life-giving, Montessori-based way of nurturing children in the Christian story and life. Godly Play, the creation of the Rev. Dr. Jerome Berryman and his wife Thea, is used in many denominations and in many countries, and has been translated into at least seven languages. This blog is not an official publication of the Godly Play Foundation (see but seeks to be a clearinghouse for ideas and experiences of teachers, trainers, and parents. Join the conversation!
