Deepening the Relationship with the Child: Godly Play as a Spiritual Practice and Tool of Renewal with Anne Clark and Ruth Lumax

“Godly Play transformed our congregation. The children came, bringing their families with them. Children began speaking aloud of their understanding of God. What they taught me transformed my “teaching.” Godly Play is not a Sunday school curriculum, it is a way of life.”

This course is the second part of an accreditation process for Godly Play storytellers and door people. Participants must have taken 8 hours of training in an Introduction to Godly Play (check out our summer offering at Sorrento Centre here » ).

You will experience the fun of Godly Play as both leader and learner, analyzing and preparing stories from various genres with peers in a collegial, non-judgmental setting. You will tell a story learned by heart; strengthen your classroom management skills and refine your understanding of the Godly Play environment. You will deepen your understanding of the spirituality of children and reconnect with the glorious, playful wisdom of the child within you as you experience the joy of God’s presence.

Anne ClarkAll learning will take place in a prayerful, playful atmosphere with creative and experienced Godly Play trainers. Participants who successfully complete this training will have completed their Certificate of Accreditation from Godly Play Canada.

ANNE CLARK is a certified Godly Play teacher (2006) and trainer (2008). She is passionate about holding sacred space for the work that children and God are doing together and about introducing Godly Play to those in our churches entrusted with the care of children.

Ruth LumaxRUTH LUMAX from wondering to leading and always wondering, Ruth enters the Godly Play circle as both practitioner (2006), Trainer (2011) and someone who is passionate about our biblical story.
