From The Good Bookstall - August 2010 In this busy world, it's often difficult to find space to come into the presence of God, to listen and to be still. If you are keen to explore prayer together as a family, but just not sure where to begin, then this book is a super resource to be able to dip into. With idea titles like 'Saying thank you', 'Praying for others' and 'Running the race', the book encourages you to create a physical prayer space in your own home that can be enjoyed by all. Each of the 14 visual prayer ideas are broken down clearly and practically into bite size chunks. I especially enjoyed the 'Living the journey' section, which provided further activities to try 'out and about'. A great book and so much more than a traditional, 'hands together and eyes closed' view of praying. Reviewed by Wendy Downey From: Retreats - 2010 How do children worship? How can they be still enough? Here is a resource involving short acts of worship centred on themes such as thanksgiving, the cross and praying for others using a multi-sensory biblical approach. There are attention-grabbing ideas to focus children's energies into listening and responding appropriately. Each idea begins by creating a display using fabric, pictures and texts and the children are guided by suggested scripts, finishing with a short prayer. I could see this being used at home with families, in children's clubs or Sunday Schools or as part of Sunday worship. Reviewed by Sheila Simpson From The Church Times - May 2009 Lynn Chambers' Creative Ideas for Quiet Corners is subtitled '14 visual prayer ideas for quiet moments with children', but her suggestions need not be confined to under-18s. She aims to show how multi-sensory niches in churches, schools, the home, or elsewhere, can be places of discovery, and help draw people into prayer. She gives recipes, with photographs, for 14 specific corners, although I am sure that, once tried, these will spark the imagination of those creating them, and lead to many more ideas. Her prayer areas include Bibles, poems, things to touch and hold and taste, pictures, candles, craft materials, and more.
