Welcome to September! Another month, another opportunity to start fresh introducing the Church Year’s rich history into your home. There are many great opportunities this month to revisit stories your children may be familiar with through their Sunday School Bible stories. Joshua, Hannah, Moses, Jonah. These are great places to start. Look around your home. You may already have story books on these individuals. Or a children’s Bible that covers them all! Incorporating those books into your daily story time (or right before bed) is a great way to bring the Church Year into your already established routine.
Looking for a little more adult study of the Church Year? As always the Treasury of Daily Prayer is the place to go for your daily devotion and dose of knowledge. Let’s learn together!
