a picture of being in the circle

I drew this myself, as part of an exercise for my spiritual director. (Please ignore the torn bit, caused by taping it up and then taking it down to bring home.)


  1. That's ingenious how you made stick figures sit "indian style"! And are the figures at the bottom part of "The Good Shepherd and the Worldwide Comunion"?

    1. :) Thanks, Sheila! Sitting cross-legged with hands on knees is a really important part of getting ready for us (although our backs aren't usually that straight!).

      The figures were representing the Holy Family, even though that now looks to me more like a camel than a cow or donkey. It was only after drawing the cross and maybe even the chalice and paten that I thought to represent the focal shelf in the foreground, so it's not "accurate", but does capture the feel it has for me.


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.
