Happy Saturday before The Eighth Sunday after Pentecost on Sunday, July 26, 2020! I pray this note finds you and your family well and safe. And, I pray that my efforts to provide these weekly resources each week have been helpful to you in some small way.
This week, we are invited to “see” the kingdom of heaven as important, good, and to be shared. In today’s scripture passage, Jesus describes the kingdom of heaven by sharing several parables with us.
To this email, I have attached a few kid-friendly versions of this week’s gospel and several hands-on activities on the theme of the treasure of God’s kingdom. Please use what works for you and your family. There is something for everyone from preschooler to tween to teen to adult.
For the next two Sundays, I will also host a weekly Zoom gathering each Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to noon. This gathering will be a time for us to share fellowship, prayer and fun. If you have a suggestion for a game, a special prayer, or want to read the scripture for the day, you are always welcome to do so. The link to the Zoom gathering can be obtained by emailing me at email@example.com. (It is the same link I sent last week, with Meeting ID ending in 3152.) I hope to see as many of you there as possible. Please make sure that your name is displayed when you log in so I will know it is safe to let you in.

O God, the protector of all who trust in you, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy: Increase and multiply upon us your mercy; that, with you as our ruler and guide, we may so pass through things temporal, that we lose not the things eternal; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
