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 27: Little Engine that Could

In today’s story, folks tend to focus on the little engine that finally agreed to pulling the train over the mountain.  I’d like to give an MVP to the toy little toy clown though.  He always kept his head up and believed there was a way to make it over the mountain.  I wonder how we can be more like the little toy clown.

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.
