Jennifer, reading through these principles made me wish I could become a child again and experience this sort of education.

 

When I was eleven years old my class went on a field trip to a local park, where we sat with children from other schools around a large model of the sun, focused our senses on the earth beneath us, and heard about the “sun-ship journey” we were all experiencing together at that very moment. Awe and wonder were definitely part of that day–I wish they had been a more regular part of my schooling.

 

As I hear more about the work you and others are doing to create such a rich and expansive way of learning, I am inspired.

 

And yes, please, help and guidance for religious educators would be great.
