In Family Sunday School this week, we’re talking about resilience, and dandelions growing up through pavement, or in my case, irises growing around the base of my deck. We’re also talking about our obligation to teach our young people that they, too, can grow, regardless — and that they are tougher than they look, as well.
I am excited to announce that starting on Memorial Day at 9:30 am, we will begin a new group meeting called: “Practicing Prayerful Presence.” Among other things, it will be a follow-up from Dr. Tim Bruster’s sermon series “A Healthy Spirituality for Our Time,” and is open to all.
This school year was a whirlwind of very inconvenient incidences that made me stray from the productivity I find so much comfort in and made my naturally busy-bodied soul feel frustrated, angry, and disappointed. So to all of my fellow busy-bodies out there: Be still. It might be the most productive thing you do all day.
