on discovery

In most religious education children are told who God is. In 'Godly Play' children discover who God is...we respond to the child's request to 'help me do it by myself’

*I found this in an article which didn't give a full bibliographic reference for it, but I think this must be the source: Rebecca Nye, "Christian perspectives on children's spirituality: Social science contributions?" in Donald Ratcliff's Children's spirituality: Christian Perspectives, Research and Applications: 2004).

Thanks for conversing with me about Godly Play®! I do moderate some comments for the sake of the children I write about. Please be polite: to quote the Velveteen Rabbi, Whatever you're going to say in response to my posts, consider whether it's the sort of thing you would say to your host or their children if you'd been invited to someone's home for tea. If it isn't, then please don't say it here.

If you're new to commenting on blogs, I recommend that you "Comment as" Name/URL. You can use your real first name or a nickname. URL is the address of a website that you want to be linked with your name - feel free to leave it blank. Before your comment is accepted, you have to pass a spam filter. After clicking on 'post comment' or 'preview', just type in the sequence of letters you will then see (or click on the wheelchair for a recording of characters to type).
