Happy New Year! 

Happy New Year! I want to take the time to say thank you for allowing me to be in the community with your little humans—it has been a blessing to learn from them. I found the best moments in open dialogue and being able to actively digest their profound opinions about God, their perception of the world, and their understanding of themselves. Truly, it has been a blessing.   

Last Sunday, 10 am, the older group spent a lot of time analyzing Isaiah 66:10-13, particularly 66:11 as many concepts uplifted the parental descriptive words of “mother” and “father” to embrace God’s acts. We left the conversation open ended as we will continue the discussion next week of “why does scripture, particularly Isaiah 66:11 use maternal language to describe God and the importance of seeing it in their lives?” 10:30 am, the younger group spent time talking about the meaning of the new year and why the new year is important. The youth spent some time discussing why they wanted to reflect on 2021 before embracing 2022. Also, we spent some time in Psalms 139:13-14, “God Made You” in The Tiny Truths Wonder and Wisdom.   

This Sunday, our older and younger students will continue to dive deeper into the nuances of naming God at 10 am (4th grade or older) for fellowship to read Isaiah 66:10-13. 10:30 am (3rd grade or younger) will continue exploring, Psalms 139:13-14, “God Made You” in The Tiny Truths Wonder and Wisdom.
