June is here, families!
There is so much going on in our personal lives, our church family (new building/re-gathering preparations), our nation and our world right now. It has been an overwhelming week for sure with COVID-19 news, economic hardship news, severe social injustices, scary rioting within our own city and across the nation, and a very charged political climate. We desperately need some PEACE and not just ANY peace! The PEACE that comes for our Lord, alone. Yes?!?! Well, PEACE is what our lesson is about this week! The wonderful fruit of the Spirit that we desire so much right now, precious peace (Galatians 5).
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
Also later this week: I will be sending out a few resources to share with your children regarding the events that have rocked our country in the past two weeks, both as online resources as well as links for ordering print publications. I hope they will be a great educational tool and discussion starter for you and your children. Be on the lookout for these!
In the meantime, PEACE! I pray this, sometimes elusive, fruit over your family this week. There is a great activity pack attached that has lots of ideas for your family to do at home this week. Check it out! I hope some of the resources below will encourage you. I love you all dearly, miss you tons, and pray for you daily--
