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.
Today, we’ll get to learn the ten movements! This has reminded me to move my body more these days. I’ve been doing the movements. And, Archie (my dog) and I have been doing a lot of running. We both love to run. Being outside is really important, right now especially! When Archie and I run, we make sure to give everyone a lot of space. And, I like to smile at people if I’m not wearing a face mask. Running and smiling bring me so much joy! I wonder what outdoor activity or body movements bring you joy.
- 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.
