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 16: Story of Ruth

Today we learn about love. Love is the most important. When we are sad. Love. When we are hurting. Love. When we are bored. Love. When we happy. Love. When we are scared. Love. When we are angry.  Love.  When we feel alone. Love. Love can change us. Love can change the world. Love your friends. Love your family. Love your neighbor. Love those you don’t know yet. Just love!

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.
