Stories of Science and Discovery

For this Sunday, the RE kids will be learning about the stories that come from science and discovery! After checking in, the kids will hear Once Upon a Star by James Carter, which tells the story of the Big Bang. Just like how scientists answered the big question “Where did the universe come from?” the children of RE will take time to ask their own questions, and see if science has a story for them too!

Stories That Remind Us to Love Our Neighbors

The kids this week will learn what it means to love your neighbor! They’ll begin by listening to Maybe I Can Love My Neighbor Too by Jennifer Grant. After the story, the kids will learn about the Jewish and Christian origins of this rule, and unpack what it means to “respond to God’s love.” They’ll discuss what God means to different people, and how responding to love with more love is something anyone can do.

Stories From Religions Around the World

Children this Sunday will be exploring tales from around the world! They’ll listen to the book Zen Shorts by Jon J. Muth, and hear stories from Zen Buddhism and Taoism. Afterwards, the kids will share what other faiths they know, as they discover the many religions that fill our world

The Power of Stories

“You’re never going to kill storytelling, because it’s built in the human plan. We come with it.” – Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid’s Tale. Today we’ll explore this extraordinary and sacred human talent.
