Welcome back! We got just a little bit behind in our blogging over the Holiday season. I wanted to write just a short post to let you know that we had a very magical advent season in the Godly Play classroom. We shared all four weeks of the advent story together as we remembered the prophets, the holy family, the shepherds, and the wise men as we lit candles each week. Our advent work culminated in a special story dedicated to the Epiphany where they kids were able to see (and smell) the gifts of the Magi. The kids dove into all kinds of wonderfully creative responses to these stories. I decided a slide show might be the best way to show you what we've been up to. I've included links at the bottom to some wonderful videos showing the stories that we told if you'd like to see more.
