Twelve New Godly Play teachers!
For three days in Houston, I and my fellow trainer Karin Liebster worked and played with 12 new Godly Play teachers, taking the “core” training that results in certification from the Godly Play Foundation. This training allows people to immerse in Godly Play practice and theory. Besides hearing 14 stories, each person tells one to the group — and these people did so with grace and poise. They also learned about children’s spirituality, the importance of sacred space and how to create it, and how to support the circle of children. We enjoyed great hospitality from the people of Christ the King Lutheran Church, who hosted our training at Bellaire UMC. If you have not been through a core training, please consider doing so, not just for the children you love and teach, but also for the retreat-like experience deepening your own spirituality.
