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 31: Joseph Feeds and Forgives

The other day, a very good friend dropped a social distance care package off at my door. I was so happy to receive it! It feels really good to be remembered. During the Time with Children this past Sunday, I asked you to reach out to your Sunday School classmates. I bet you’d be surprised how much hearing from you would mean to them! Parents, you received an email from me with contact information for each class. If you didn’t receive it, just let me know and I will send again. Prayers for health. Prayers for joy. Prayers for being in community in different ways for the time being.

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.
