These can feel like anxious and uncertain times for any of us, and perhaps especially for our children. Schools closing and changes to their routines can make it even harder!
On the new website and Facebook pages, we’ll be posting ideas, activities and ways we can help one another. I’ll also be creating Sunday-School-At-Home plans with easy readings and activities you can try at home. The Illustrated Ministry Lenten Devotional is a great place to start!
In addition, I wanted to share two articles I’ve found helpful about how to talk with our children and young people about the coronavirus and all that is going on.
- Building Faith: Coronavirus, Anxiety, Children and the Church talks a lot about changes to communion and worship, but the ideas can be applied more broadly.
- PBS: How to Talk to Your Kids About Coronavirus. Daniel Tiger and Mr. Rogers are always fonts of wisdom! This also has links to videos that may be helpful
Also, please know that Pastor Amy is available for a calls or video-chats. We’ll be working on other ways to get together in virtual small groups as well! Amy’s email is [email protected] and cell is 617-938-8112.
