Guest Preacher and Workshop – Raising Children of Faith
February 23 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Sunday, February 23 – worship + workshop in St. John’s Sanctuary and Library respectively.
Tain Gregory was present in his third-grade classroom on the morning of the Sandy Hook shootings. As part of the healing process for the community after the tragedy Tain was asked, “What’s the most important thing in the world to you?” His mother expected an answer about a video game or Pokémon trading card. Tain thinks for a moment then answers with one word. “God.” Taking the events of that tragic day, but also the years preceding it, and the days of recovery and healing that followed, Sophfronia and Tain share stories, experiences, and ideas to help parents get to the heart of the question: How do you help a child have faith — real faith that they own — in the challenging world we live in today?
Tain will be preaching on the lectionary during worship. Afterwards, Tain and Sophfronia will lead a workshop in the library about raising children of faith. Make a plate at coffee hour and come join! Please let me know if you and your children will join us!
