The Godly Play baptism story allows us to weave in the trinity (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit), the light through candles and the blessing using water. It also grants us the opportunity to present the importance of each child and the name that they were given. This is a great opportunity for the children to recount their baptism and to review Jesus' baptism.
As our story tellers retell the story, they help us remember our Baptism, recreate the light of God and then, when the lesson ends, the children can take that light of God into the world to share it with their family, friends and neighbors.
For this week’s Sunday School lesson, we invite families to upcycle their old candles, crayons, jars, milk cartons and shells to recreate a new candle for 2021 as a reminder that YOU are loved by God!
