Yesterday’s Feast of the Epiphany marked the return of The Good Book Club.
For the first time in my adult life, I’m nervous about Advent.
The annual elementary school Thanksgiving feast is such prominent event from my childhood, and one I’m incredibly grateful that my own children have never experienced.
What in our lives now is the same as it was pre-pandemic
I found the carefully curated items inside my monthly ConseCrate box too good to give up.
A couple of weeks ago Building Faith shared a resource about resuming formation classes from the Association of Presbyterian Church Educators (APCE) and the Office of Christian Formation in the Presbyterian Mission Agency (PMA)\, and I haven’t stopped thinking about it.
In March 2020, my small church pressed the pause button on several ministries. Even as some groups stopped gathering, other ministries adapted, evolved and even grew.
Mark’s account of the resurrection is absolutely perfect for children.
Do you remember observing Maundy Thursday at home last year? It felt like a quaint, one-time experience to share with our households, then years later share as a story with future generations of the family. Except of course, it wasn’t a one-time experience. We’re here again a year later with another Maundy Thursday at home.
The pandemic has highlighted what I’ve known for years: faith formation happens at home not exclusively during a 45-minute period on Sunday morning.
