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.

April 7: Mindful Movements Part 1

Moving can be spiritual.  Moving our bodies can be an act of faith.  I don’t know about you, but I needed that reminder during this time of being at home a lot!!  For the next two blogs, we’ll learn about a set of ten mindful movements that a Buddhist monk named Tich Nhat Hanh created.  The first video tells us who this guy is.  And, the second video shows us what the movements are.  Hope you enjoy!

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.
