A parent’s blessing is vitally important to the health and well-being of his or her children. The Genesis story of Jacob and Esau—the story of how Jacob lied and schemed to steal from his brother their father’s blessing—shows just how vital that blessing can be.

This small group is designed especially for parents, grandparents, and caretakers of young children. The concept of blessing, or bestowing unconditional love, is at the core of our Christian faith and necessary for any child’s health and well-being. Not only will the whole concept of blessing be discussed in this group, but there will also be an exploration of the various ways in which we can bless our children. Five methods will be discussed: meaningful and appropriate touch, a spoken message, attaching high value to the child, picturing a special future for the child, actively committing to do everything possible to ensure that the blessing comes to pass.

While your children are in Sunday school, please join Linda Ashe-Ford for a time of exploring this important topic. Coffee, tea, and simple snacks will be available for this adult time together in an informal setting.

When: Five Sundays at St. Paul’s: February 22, March 1, 8, 15, 22
