Summary

Silence


This illustrated book for children captures the mindfulness, measured pace, and pauses that children experience in the Godly Play circle or a supplement to any child's bookshelf. Silence is important for children; it is the stillness -- both internal and external -- that children need in today's frenzied world. Godly Play founder Jerome Berryman offers children (and those who love them) a means to contemplate words and images, to develop a comfort level with silence that creates a foundation for wonder and the creative process. "Contemplative Silence" is a core component of Godly Play as found in all sacred story, parables, and liturgical action lessons presented to children. In each lesson, children encounter silence during entering, the lesson, wondering, art and material responses, the feast, and saying good-bye. This companion to the Complete Guide to Godly Play volumes will find a home in all Godly Play rooms as well as other formation settings for children: homes, churches, Episcopal schools, and hospitals.
