Gratitude, Advent, and More – October Weaving Faith

Friends and Colleagues, it has been quite the whirlwind in my house lately. Brian and I became empty nesters when our youngest moved into her dorm in September. Last Friday I was ordained as a Deacon in the United Methodist Church. With a heart full of thanks for so many milestones, here is the  October edition of Weaving Faith:

Join me at this event:

October 21-22 is the Symposium on Children’s Spirituality hosted online by Virginia Theological Seminary. I look forward to hearing the newest research on Children’s Spirituality and will be a breakout room facilitator.

Gratitude resources perfect for November multi-generational gatherings:

Make a gratitude box or jar with your family

Create psalm inspired art or greeting cards

Last year’s Thanksgiving Children’s Moment

Looking ahead to Advent:

Last year’s Advent at Home Box

Last year’s free family Advent activities list

Too good to miss:

I just love these I Wonder Cards from Glenys Nellist. They go along with her new children’s Bible. Free to Download here.

A Blessing:

May your fall days be as peace-filled as this one.
