Play is an important part of life, especially when we are young. Play is not simply an opportunity for fun and recreation, it helps us to learn, to connect, and become. Play is a 'liminal space' where we are open to new possibilities and where we let go into freedom. Wait - that sounds like what happens when we encounter God!
During this training event, Judy Steers will help us explore play, games, creative fun and how theology and play come together in children's and youth ministry and how we can integrate all of those things in our ministries. Come prepared to laugh and learn. Judy has been a youth ministry leader, teacher and consultant for over 20 years. She is currently playing with lots of new ideas in inter-faith poetry slams and her MA in applied theology.
