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 28: Isaiah Becomes God’s Messenger
In today’s story, we hear about how Isaiah becomes God’s messenger. God has lots of messengers! Isaiah is just one example. You can be a messenger too! When we are messengers of God, we spread love and hope. I wonder how you could spread love and joy. Could you write your senior friend a letter? This is a time where they might be feeling lonely and receiving a letter from you could fill them with hope and help them feel loved.
- 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.
