November's Theme is Healing

Sunday and Every Day: Taking it Home

Healing the Earth

IMG_2077The monthly theme of Healing was seen through the lens of Healing the Earth last Sunday. In the Spirit Play class the kids had the story "My Mama Earth", and in the Labyrinth Learning (1st-5th grade) class the lesson focused on ways to take care of the earth such as recycling and reducing energy use. 

The Middle School group discussed allowances, the difference between a Want and a Need, and practical life skills. They took home a homework sheet to help them discuss their allowances and chores with their families.

Discuss it at home:

  • What is our relationship to earth and nature?
How do we take care of earth and nature? What could we do differently to take better care of the earth?

How can we respond to climate change? As a family? As a community? 

Faith Adventure:

Choose one way your family could lower its carbon footprint or take better care of the earth, and commit to making that one change.
