Reflection Area

When we first set this up we were quite surprised that it was actually the boys who preferred coming to this area!

We set out some thows and cushions in a corner where, during time we spent with prayer stations, children could just come and sit silently with God.  We lit a candle and detailed one of the adults to keep a quiet watch over the area so that the children could light tea lights if they wanted to.  We also provided pens and paper so they could write or draw, stones to hold as a physical focus and a few reflective questions such as "If God came to your school, who would he talk to?"  We made it clear that this was a silent area and anyone who was disruptive would be asked to leave the space.  We had no trouble whatsoever and at one point we ran out of space to sit!
