Happy Ascension Day

Happy Ascension Day!

Hallelujah! not as orphans
Are we left in sorrow now;
Hallelujah! He is near us

We celebrated Ascension Day last Sunday, using the lesson from Young Children and Worship. You can read more about that below.

Welcome to any readers who have followed the link from the Child in the Midst newsletter by Mary Hawes and Going for Growth. It's a real honor to be mentioned. I'm both thrilled and a little nervous, to tell the truth! Mary wrote to me and explained that she'd first found my blog by following a link from Sheila's Explore and Express blog, so thank you to Mary and Sheila, both, for the encouragement.


  1. there is surely a reason you cropped it the way you did - but personally I don't think it's an improvement :(

  2. Sorry, stf. (As you know, the original is on Facebook, for friends.)

    I probably ought to post about this, but I'm go back and forth about how much to include children's faces on the blog. This child's mother has given us permission, and I'm sure that's why you were pleased to get this shot. But for the moment, I wanted to crop it enough so that the child wasn't so recognizable. It's something I want to continue mulling over - not a final decision yet.


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!
