Abstract

Spiritual formation, if it is to get off the ground, requires readiness. But not so much a readiness acquired by instruction in orienting information as in readiness of spirit—quiet receptivity and an uncluttered imagination. One of the unique and compelling aspects of the spiritual formation school of "godly play" as developed and practiced by Professor Sonja Stewart and her colleagues is the careful attention given to providing just such readiness of spirit for the children in our churches as they enter classrooms of spiritual formation.
