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.
April 4: Voice from the Burning Bush
Did you know that God is in places we never thought of? Today our story is about how Moses finds God in a burning bush! Can you believe that? Moses shows us that God is here for us literally everywhere. God is in our waking, and our sleeping. God is with us when we are afraid and when we are happy. God comes to us in our pets and in the wind that tickles our faces. God nourishes us through the food we eat and love we get from others. Wherever love and support is, there is God too!
- 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.
