|Putting our worries before God - chilling |
out space and bubble tube!
|Some of those post it worries or prayers|
I have helped on several of these now and it's amazing how each one is so different. The sense of God's presence differs from school to school, different questions are asked and children respond in different ways (as do the adults!) In fact that is one of the most interesting things - the differing responses to the space. There have been kids who don't want to leave it, or want to come back another day. There have been requests for a permanent space like it. Some kids come in with one attitude and leave with another, some respond emotionally while others are quiet and pensive. It feels like God just meets with the kids wherever they are at, on so many different levels. And out of the spaces I have helped in I have never seen a child taking the micky out of another for their response, or picking them up on something they have said, it's like they recognise there is something special about the space or something holy and they have respect for each other accordingly.
