Did you know that Godly Play, our beloved Christian Education curriculum for small children, is an integral part of the Spiritual Care program at Wolfson Children's Hospital? Because of the dedication of Christ Church parishioners Joan Farrell, Malinda Harris, Nancy Grogan and others, children at the hospital can find spiritual comfort and renewal from this method of sacred storytelling. Nancy Grogan, pictured above, uses Godly Play materials to tell stories at children's bedsides - stories of hope, perseverance, and God's loving care.
Sadly, the pandemic has interrupted bedside storytelling, due to visitor limitations and the risk associated with bringing storytelling materials into multiple rooms. Here's where we can help!
Soon, we'll have an opportunity for Christ Church families to fund and assemble Godly Play storytelling kits which will be given to families at Wolfson to keep. Families who participate will sponsor a kit for less than $20, pick up the materials at Christ Church, assemble a story at home, and return it to the church. Our team will deliver completed kits to Wolfson.
With a take-home kit, children at Wolfson can continue to safely enjoy sacred and beloved Godly Play stories like Creation, The Parable of the Good Shepherd, and the Parable of the Mustard Seed.
More information about how to participate will be shared by email and on Facebook
soon. In the meantime, if your family would like to participate, please join the mailing list for this project by contacting Catherine Montgomery
