Playing Church

Boys playing church at homeThese two boys are ‘playing’ church at home. The video shows them re-enacting the Orthodox liturgy. They have been part of it enough to know gesture, symbol, posture. But more interestingly is how their mother is supporting their play by chanting the songs they would hear in the service.
Dumbing down liturgy isn’t necessary. Child-sized religion isn’t necessary. Including and supporting children in the participation of worship IS necessary.
