Food for thought and soul – reflecting on Matthew 20:1-16
Here are our offerings for you this week…….
An article or prayer for parents – I found these tips for handling fear from Sacred Ordinary Days helpful.
A question for your family to discuss – Where is the unfairness in our world today? List as many as you can think of.
What is one thing we can do about one of the things on our list? Do that together this week.
An activity that encourages faith formation – Buy grapes and eat them with your family. Ask the children if they like eating grapes and why or why not. Discuss with the children how grapes grow in a vineyard and about the important job of picking the grapes without bashing them. Talk about the story in Matthew 20 and the people needed to pick the grapes. Talk about the generosity of the vineyard owner in paying people what they needed to live rather than paying them for the number of hours they worked. Talk about how God is generous to us because God loves us all.
We hope these resources will help your family strengthen your faith during these times.
