Take time before the session and find a quiet place for reflection. How do you live in community with others? How do you live a sharing and caring life? It can be as easy as a smile for lonely 12-year-old, or as difficult as a phone call to the family of an elderly neighbor who needs help. Living in community means being part of an interdependent web.
How do you live in the community of your congregation? You give to this community by sharing your time and talent as a teacher. How have you received from the community? Are you in a covenant group or small-group ministry? How being in the community of your congregation affected your life?
Bring this awareness of living in community to your session with the children.
