Grounded in the Children: Close to the Mystery of God stimulus paper, this Professional Learning Workshop will explore how the Christian theological tradition helps us to understand the experiences of children.  the learning will focus on three fundamental Catholic Christian theological concepts - that children are created, that their lives are graced, and that they suffer from the 'brokenness' that afflicts the human condition.  The exploration will consider how these theological understandings can help educators develop pedagogies that are attuned to children's experience; provide learning that invites each child to 'flourish' and attends to children's experiences of 'brokenness' in ways that make them aware that they live in 'God's abiding love.'
