This week we are reading Galatians and Philemon and reflecting on our part in racial justice. Click here for this week’s resources.
After watching last weeks Godly Play version of the Ten Commandments by Lisa Gochnauer, we practiced learning the 10 Best Ways (Commandments) in creative ways, through stories, games, hand gestures, and songs.
We also talked about the “Holy Trinity”. The children’s assigned task was to bring something to class to share that has 3 parts, sides, or points.
Listed are some of their creative answers:
Sebastian – 3 pointer in basketball,
Carolynn – Mr. Rosie her rabbit who has a triangle of color on his face,
Lindsay – the 3 part habitat for her butterfly,
Evan – a triangle building magnet,
Brooke – the triangle of her cat’s ear,
Mark – his lego piece of the Flat Iron building in NY that has 3 sides,
Nina – 3 dvd’s of movies in the same series,
Cameron – a clover from her yard with 3 leaves,
Ariel – a fidget spinner which has 3 points.
What a blessing these wonderful minds and spirit’s are. May we all have the faith of a child. Kathryn

Matthew 9:37-38 – Then [Jesus] said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” How will our faith communities look when we finally emerge from our sheltering in place? Many things will have changed, but the good news is eternal. We listen to Jesus, pray for renewal, and trust that God is doing a new thing with, among, and through us.
