I've been meaning to ask... Children's Lessons

With a series focused on connection and community, we chose to introduce dialogue in as many places as we could. We selected a panel of four guest contributors, we created conversation cards, and we crafted our study journal with small group discussion in mind. Following that path, we have written corresponding children’s lessons in the form of a dialogue. Included for each week is a two-person script, questions to ask afterward, and a closing prayer, all based on each week’s sub-theme.

Again & Again, Our Lenten Refrains—Music Ideas for Lent

We have suggested many short and simple refrains (such as those from the Taizé community) which can help us embody the practice of repetition, repeating the same few lines again & again until they lodge in our souls like muscle memory. Some suggestions could also be used week after week to build patterns into your Lenten worship.
