I'm an immigrant to Finland, leading junior church in English for a small diverse group of international children. I fell in love with Godly Play on a three-day training / accreditation course in late winter, 2010. Soon thereafter, bit by bit, I began "infiltrating" the junior church program with Godly Play stories and ideas. I started this blog when we began to have a complete Godly Play session every Sunday (February 2011).
This is not my occupation; it is something I do in my spare time. But I don't do it alone. My good friend see-through faith has been a pillar of support, helping and encouraging me, especially by being a second responsible adult in the circle each week and by talking through afterwards what worked and what didn't. She also takes many of the photographs that you see on this blog. My husband, "Vandriver", helps set up, break down, and transport materials every week, and is wholeheartedly supportive of what I'm doing. I have bought and/or made all the story materials myself, the church reimburses me for some of the art supplies, and the parents provide food for the feasts.
Update (autumn 2013): I was fortunate to be able to take preliminary training in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd this fall. With fits and starts, the Play and Pray area limps along. Sadly, we do not have the resources (mainly personnel) to carry on with Godly Play, although the children clearly miss it.
