Growing Together

In these times, we’re doing faith formation differently to keep us safe and healthy. Here, on this new blog, every day you’ll find a video of Eli’jah reading from Desmond Tutu’s Children of God Storybook Bible, plus a child-friendly reflection and three prayers for your day.

March 25: Strange Visitors

In today’s story, Abraham and Sarah help people that they had never met before.  They didn’t know anything about them.  They just saw three people that could probably use some food and rest.  So they helped!  These visitors turned out to be angels.  When we help our neighbor who we may not know, we never know who that person really is.  And, it is always a blessing to help.

Each first Sunday of the month, you (our children) are invited to bring canned food forward to support the good efforts of V.E.A.P. (Volunteers Enlisted to Assist People).  Because of all of us staying home to protect each other from getting really sick right now, we won’t be able to do it in the same way this coming month.  But, we can still help!  VEAP does a lot of good things for people in need.  We hope you consider being helpful by supporting V.E.A.P.

Daily Prayers

  • In the morning when we wake up: May today bring joy in new ways. Amen.
  • At mealtimes: Dear God, thank you for health. Thank you for the earth. Thank you for the hands and hearts that made this food. May the earth and your people be healthy. Amen.
  • Bedtime: Dear God, thank you for resting from the top of my head down to my toes. Your love will be with me even in my sleep. Amen.
