Sometimes I get to share children’s time teachings with my congregation. When I do, I share them here.
For this children’s time, from the Sunday before Thanksgiving, children shared parts of creation that they are thankful for. In the weeks before, they submitted drawings of landscapes, plants, and animals that they love. I used these to illustrate the first creation story in Genesis, viewing humans as dependent on nature rather than dominating it, an insight from Native American expressions of Christianity.
