We All Belong
Recognizing and celebrating our differences and diversity in our lives is so very important in these times and will be important forever. This is much needed in our society today. Our God made each one of us using his creative and colorful palette that is so very beautiful. In our churches today, we need to find more ways to help families grow daily in faith and with empathy and compassion for everyone while always embracing diversity. We must provide safe spaces for all children to see themselves and others as being part of this diverse community of believers.
In this post there will be resources added over a period of time to reflect God’s creation and His Church for today. There will be ideas for literature to share with families for faith talks and much more. Stay tuned.
