This Sunday during our time together
we will invite children to find Exodus in their Bibles and read another book of
stories about our faith ancestors. We will recall last week’s story about Moses
(Exodus 1:8—2:10): a baby who was hidden in a basket in a river, watched
over by his sister Miriam, and rescued from the river by the daughter of the
Pharaoh of Egypt. This week’s story (Exodus 3:1–15) Moses is a grownup
who is married and has a job looking after his father-in-law’s sheep. As we
remember these stories we will introduced the children to the meditation
practices like finger Labyrinths.
Childcare will be available for children ages 6 and under on the 2nd floor
classrooms. Claudia Herrera, Patricia Pastás, and Gianna Nutile are our
childcare workers this Sunday.
Please join us on September
26 to discuss the next HMPC Book Group selection. Newcomers are always welcome!
