Elected! and Remembered


As we continue to talk with the children about their questions about church membership, baptism, and what it means to vote for a pastor, we received this great response from Ruth. I hope the children can see this as an example of affirmation of asking questions and seeking answers together, and the value of their participation in the community we call Rainbow.


On Sunday we also went outside to include our leaves, as well as those collected during worship, in the Remembrance Garden. As one child picked up a leaf to attach to the string, she said, “Hey, I knew this person, too.” As the children read the names on the leaves they were attaching to the string, I had to think that it was a way of adding their voices to remembering those who have gone before.
