God’s Stories of Love and Justice
Claire Brown, Brittany Sky
Saturday, 4:00pm | Bridge
We transmit our faith to children through our stories. What if children had the opportunity to make these stories—and faith—their own through wonder, play, and relationship building? We believe that stories transform us, connect us, and empower us. Join us for a collaborative and experiential session that demonstrates how we can be in spiritual community with children and families through the power of narrative. We’ll play, share stories, and artistically engage prayer, putting this critical, creative discipleship into practice. This creative theological pedagogy is accessible to everyone—adults and children.
