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.
May 13: The Three Wise Men (Ones)
Today, we’ll hear a story that we often hear and learn about after Christmas Day. Usually, we hear this story and learn about this story on the first Sunday of January, known as Epiphany Sunday. An easy way to describe Epiphany is Ah-Ha! During our stay at home time, I’ve had quite a few Ah-Ha moments because I’m learning how to do things that I normally do out in the world differently since I’m spending a lot of time at home. One Ah-Ha moment I had was when I figured out how to change my background in zoom meetings. I used a picture from my favorite cartoon, Bob’s Burgers! I wonder what Ah-Ha moments you’ve had during our Stay at Home time.
- 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.
