50 Days of Spiritual Practice

Week Five: Thinking about God’s Love

Monday: God’s love does not depend on our behavior. We do our best to be kind and caring, knowing that God loves us even when we make mistakes.

Tuesday: Sometimes we don’t feel loved or loveable. Has there been a time hen you felt that way? Remember God always loves us.

Wednesday: We share God’s love by serving those in need. How can you share God’s love today?

Thursday: First Corinthians chapter 13 talks about God’s love. It says  that love is patient and kind. What else does it say?

Friday: The Bible says that God is love. God and love are the same thing. What do you think about that?

Saturday: Is there anything that can separate us from God’s love? The Bible says no. Do you agree?

Sunday Prayer: “God, your love is all around us today and every day. Help us remember your love next week as we serve others each day.”

Great Books to Read

Books that compliment our Spring Kairos session

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has a vision of God's dream, which he shares here with the youngest of listeners. It involves people who reach out and hold each other's hands, but sometimes get angry and hurt each other — and say they're sorry and forgive. It's a wish that everyone will see they are brothers and sisters, no matter their way of speaking to God, no matter the size of their nose or the shade of their skin. Aided by vibrant artwork evoking such images as a rainbow and a sharing circle. "A great book to read about treating others the way we want to be treated." -Mary Langley

Books for Preschoolers

Children Use their whole bodes to praise God! Your family will love this unique board book! Using colorful, engaging artwork, Psalms of Praise introduces little ones to the lyrical Scripture of the Psalms while illustrating how our everyday movements are actually postures of praise. "I love to read this book with preschoolers and practice all the movements to praise God. It is a fun read!" -Mary Langley
The Bible is filled with amazing promises for young and old alike. Children will love practicing their ABCs and learning these simple Scripture verses, introducing them to God's Word in a fun and colorful way. "This book has a variety of verses from the Old and New Testaments. It is a great way to begin helping your child know God’s word." -Mary Langley
With warmth and wisdom that speaks to the hearts of little ones, is an inspirational, heartfelt look at language and how children can use their words to encourage, forgive, express gratitude, heal, and love. Words to Love By teaches children ages 4-8 to understand: • How their words can change their lives and the lives of those around them • How everyone must take ownership of their words. "This is a great book to help children of all ages understand that your words are important—the words you say and how you say them." -Mary Langley
