We have gifted parents a book entitled, Faith @ Home, by an Episcopal Christian educator named Wendy Claire Berry. We love the book for its simple depth, extremely practical suggestions, and generous vision of faith. Especially now, when so many of us are at home, we want to support you in your family practice of faith.
We’ll have three opportunities to talk about the book as parents by Zoom. The first two will be on Sunday, September 27, and Sunday, October 11, time of day to be determined. In late October, the author herself will be joining us for a Zoom conversation at a date that is still being worked out. You do not have to have read the book to participate in any of these conversations, but any reading you do will make the conversations richer.
Additionally, Father Arlen will be offering a book group for parents using the book, The 6 Needs of Every Child: Empowering Parents and Kids Through the Science of Connection by Amy Elizabeth Olrick and Jeffrey Olrick, Ph.D. Written in conversation with faith and deep knowledge of attachment theory, the authors invite us to pivot from thinking about parenting as a job to thinking about parenting as a journey. We’ll move at a pace that works for those who want to be part of the group. Simply email Arlen to join.
Our nursery welcomes children, infants-5 years old, from 9:15am - 12pm. Our supervisor, Molly Haffner, is an educator and school psychologist. Her assistants and volunteers are trained in safeguarding practices. Parents sign-in children and are given a pager on which they can be reached during Worship.
