In "Signs of Our Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants learn about baby cuddling or baby rocking—a way to give service that welcomes a newborn and shows reverence for their new life.
Introduce the guest speaker by saying that one way we show what we believe in is by what we dedicate our time to doing. Some adults (and perhaps youth—check with your guest) dedicate some of their time to helping sick newborn babies by offering them the warmth and love of close cuddling. Explain that these volunteers visit a hospital to cuddle and rock the babies that must stay in the hospital until they are healthy enough to go home with their families.
Invite the speaker to talk for five to ten minutes. Make sure there is time for questions. If the speaker suggested a craft activity the children can do to help, lead the activity. Thank your guest and congratulate the children on how well they welcomed them.
