simplicity and relationship

Maybe children don’t need the bells and whistles to make a connection to God’s truths. They need simplicity and relationship.
by Emily A. Mullens


  1. I love that quote! Thanks for the reminder!
    Do you mind if I copy your language on "If you're new to commenting on blogs"? I'm finding some people are confused and you sure do spell it out nicely!

  2. I think relationship is the KEY to evangelism and discipleship at every age

  3. Leslie - Sure! Thanks for asking, and thanks for the kind words.

    stf - A good point!

  4. I just went in and added the paragraph on commenting! Thanks so much! I think it will be helpful!


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). Thanks for reading and commenting!
