Galicia


During this past month of May, there have been no invitations to lead Godly Play seminars or workshops. So, Cilla and I took a few days off to visit our son, John Paul, and his family at their hotel in Galicia, north-west Spain. These times always give me the chance to practise some of the Godly Play stories with my grandchildren. As soon as I arrive at their house, Danny, the youngest member of the family, always asks me if I have brought any of the wooden figures that are used in Godly Play. These children are my guinea pigs, especially for trying out what are for me new lessons. Their reactions to the stories are very helpful... and they just love Godly Play, so it's all mutually beneficial!

This time we shared the stories of 'The Good Shepherd and World Communion', 'The Holy Family', 'Jesus and the Twelve' and 'The Mystery of Pentecost'. In addition, the children took part in a crafts session to make their own set of the 'Good Shepherd' materials.

Hi Corby,

'Living the Good News' are about to publish 3 volumes of The Complete Guide to Godly Play manuals in Spanish... even though they are about a year overdue! More info is on their website: www.livingthegoodnews.com. There is also information about resources for Spanish speakers on my Godly Play blogs: http://godlyplayspain.blogspot.com and http://godlyplayespain.blogspot.com. You might also wish to contact the Godly Play Foundation in the States, who should be able to inform you of other groups using GP in Spanish.

Best wishes for your project,
David
