Children’s Religious Education: It Takes a Congregation

Friends: I’m taking a little break this week from writing the newsletter column. Between planning the March 13th multigenerational worship service and my Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) assignments, as well as regular duties of the job and life, and having my laptop out for repair, I have my hands a bit too full and need to let something go. I hope you, too, recognize when something needs to give in order for you to maintain good self-care. See you in church on Sunday, March 13th when we will sing about Spring-time diversity and celebrate our differences.

Blessings in this season of anticipation and hope!  ~ Charlotte
