PREPARING AT HOME
Busy families run from activity to activity, often without taking a breath or sitting with that activity long enough for it to be meaningful. Activities that are most meaningful in our lives are those for which we prepare beforehand and about which we reflect afterwards. To assist families in preparing for Sunday morning education and worship and then reflecting upon those experiences, a resource called "Preparing at Home" is available by email each Monday morning. This resources offers a synopsis of the weekly lectionary passage of the Bible, family activities, conversation starters, and prayers. You can find it on the homepage.
