March 2023


North Tonawanda

Exploring Lent with children was a real gift. Children are new to most stories and ready to pick out the important details from their point of view. Each day after our story time there was an opportunity to draw a picture from the story. When the story picture was done it was ok to draw a picture of anything, like a car, a movie figure etc.


One day one child drew the main character of that particular Bible story and then drew a picture of Jesus who was not in that part of the story. I asked the child to tell us about the picture. They named the central character and stopped. I asked who the other figure was and with the scorn of a knowing child and an unknowing pastor I was informed that was Jesus coming to help the character. I don’t work with children with the expectation that they will learn the details or plot or characters of the story. I only want them to hear and interact with whatever part of the story that speaks to them. That is how I read scripture. The children continue to hear the bits that are very important and amaze me with the minor details of names, plot and time of day that they do not miss.
