Great Books to Read

We are reading these two books during Kairos as we learn about the fruit of the Spirit.  These are great books to add to your home library.  Another option is to listen to a read-along version on You-Tube.

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
A fun book for all ages! Reminds us that we all have a place in God’s choir. Big...small...quiet...loud...feathered, flippered, or furred.... All God's critters have a place in the choir! And this jubilant and raucous bunch is waiting for you to join in because everybody has a part to sing. It doesn't matter if you sing like a bird...howl like a wolf...or croak like a frog!
A young girl wonders how to be a good neighbor to the dozens of people in her apartment building, the people on the street, and the other kids at the park. With help from her mama, the girl discovers that all it takes is a little kindness and creativity to show love to neighbors near and far.
