Godly Play Season of Wonder
This Advent season we invite YOU, our Godly Play community, to join us in a Season of Wonder. Wonder begins when our lives our jolted by beauty, chaos, or grief and we come face-to-face with the questions like, Who am I, really? Every Sunday in Advent, we will share a Season of Wonder Video to inspire a moment of wonder for you and your families. After you watch the video, try a WONDER WALK...whether that is walking along the beach, trekking through the snow, riding through the woods, looking out a window, or moving through your house...and notice, wonder, and rest. To view the video introduction to Season of Wonder, click HERE.
