As a now grown-up fantasy-role-player it was with some trepidation that I offered a week on using fantasy in prayer to mayBe. Perhaps they would feel the need to cast me out of the group... Perhaps they would all just laugh or, worse still, just not get it... Foolish fears - everyone willingly suspended factual reality to enter another type of belief, opened themselves up to encountering God in their imaginations, and shared the richness of their fantasies with each other. Small children allowed themselves to be quietened by the process and even joined in. What can I say except it was FANTASTIC!!
