I’ve recently been exploring the growing gap between nature and children, and the implications for our spiritual development, and that of our children. A couple of articles and some activities have come out of it so far:
Lessons from a ‘Poor old Billy tree’ – an article marking the solstice on the Mystic Christ site.
The spirituality of nature and children – an article in the diocesan newspaper.
Polly and I also bought together some nature based activities for children (and adults) aimed at nurturing a sense of awe and wonder – have a look and download them at: www.aeker.com/nature-activities/
