Resources for Adults, Youth, and Children
Praying Our Days: A Guide and Companion*
Includes devotions to mark the rhythm of the day and the Christian year; self-examination and preparation for reconciliation and the Eucharist; intercessory prayers; praying with the saints; and more. Each section opens with a brief introduction by Bishop Griswold, guiding the reader in the effective use of the material.
Love Feast: Together at the Table*
Martha Johnson Bourlakas grapples with life—life as a person of faith, life as a wife and mother, life as a clergy spouse, life as the parent of a developmentally disabled young adult, life as one unable to maintain pretense.
Roger Hutchison describes Love Feast as ". . . an intricate tapestry of words, stories, colors, and memories that will linger in your heart and soul long after you put the book down."
Cross Words: A Devotional for Youth*
Cross Words, written by Duana Cisney, is a devotional for youth to help them walk through the daily blessings and challenges of life, offering opportunities to consider how their faith might be strengthened through those experiences. Each week offers a brief reflection followed by a question to ponder, Scripture, prayer, or quote to use as a "daily touchstone" in the coming days, set in a format with open space for their own writing and drawing.
Summer Activity Pack for Children and Families: Volume 2*
In this second volume of our Summer Activity Pack, families can dig into the theme of Eco-Justice from Christina Clark’s Arts Camp as a celebration of God’s creation and how we care for it. Fun and practical suggestions for arts, crafts, and activities from Lisa Brown’s The Best VBS Workbook Ever! can be used with the Eco-Justice theme or provide inspiration for hours of family creativity. Both authors offer tips for adapting their ideas to use at home.
The Very Best Day
For churches and families, The Rev. Lauren Villemuer-Drenth has written a lesson plan which includes discussion questions and activities for each of the seven practices of The Way of Love to accompany Roger Hutchison's The Very Best Day.
We are also pleased to offer a selection of coloring pages.
