Children and Youth Ministry Update from The Rev. Francesca Fortunato

May 22nd,2020 Categories: Latest News
Dear Park People,
On Sunday, May 17th, the Park Sunday school children read and discussed the Noah Story, from Genesis, from the perspective of the dove, with Pastor Kaji. It was a great opportunity for them to gain a different view of that scripture, and their own roles in the ongoing story of God’s revelation.

On Sunday, May 25th, they will continue reading the story of the prophet, Nehemiah, with me, as we explore what the people of Jerusalem learned about God, from their experience of rebuilding their city’s walls, and the wonderful message from Ezra’s reading of the law: “Rejoice, for God makes you strong!” We will discuss the ways that God is making us strong, at this time, and all of the different, joyful ways, that we can use that strength. We will then compose special prayers for holy strength, and the ability to use it for good.

May all of us be able to recognize and celebrate the strength that God gives to us, in these days when we need that strength, so very much.

Blessings and well wishes as always,
Rev. Francesca Maria (Miriam) Fortunato: Children’s Minister
