SPIRITUALITY FOR THE CLASSROOM
Paperback, 234 pagesISBN: 9781925138436
The claim of people today to be "spiritual but not religious" presents a challenge for religious educators in schools and church communities. This book outlines understandings of spirituality from faith traditions, and contemporary social and educational research, with particular reference to children's innate spirituality. The author's own research with children in Victorian state schools is applied to providing a spiritually sensitive environment, as a pathway to children's faith development. Wyn Moriarty is a recent PhD graduate of Australian Catholic University in the field of children's spirituality. She is a retired teacher with experience in religious education and children's ministry in the evangelical, Anglican and Catholic traditions, and in secular schools.
