    M. Franklin Dotts is a retired Minister of Christian Education and former Executive Editor of Children’s Publications at the United Methodist Publishing House.

    I highly recommend The Great Spiritual Migration: How the World’s Largest Religion Is Seeking a Better Way to be Christian (New York: Convergent Books, 2016) by Brian McLaren—one of the speakers at the upcoming Curious.Church 20178 CEF Conference in DesMoines—as a resource for either personal or group reflection. 

    The book is divided into three parts:

    • The Spiritual Migration: From a System of Beliefs to a Way of Life
    •  The Theological Migration: From a Violent God of Domination to a Nonviolent God of Liberation
    • The Missional Migration: From Organized Religions to Organizing Religion

    with several chapters in each. Each chapter closes with ideas for contemplation, questions for conversation, and suggestions for action.

    As he closes Part II, The Theological Migration, McClaren assures us that the message of Jesus is central to this migration:

    Through his life and teachings, in his compassionate interactions with individuals and groups, in his profound nonviolence even to the point of enduring a violent death, Jesus reveals a generous God, a God in profound solidarity with all creation, a God whose power is manifest in gentleness, kindness, and love. Through his promise that he would rise and be present in and with us, he invites us to experience God as the holy and creative Spirit of justice, joy, and peace, moving through all creation, at work in all human history, [and] present in our personal experience.

    In addition, Abingdon Press has recently released a new resource for group study — Way of Life: A Study Based on The Great Spiritual Migration — which McLaren has also created. This study includes a Participant Guide, Leader Guide, and DVD resource.

    With our dwindling numbers and aging congregations in The United Methodist Church, we need to be aware of the important perspectives that McLaren shares in these new resources.

    In a world where intolerance and bullying dominates all aspects of society, including the headlines, tolerance is an important gift to give children. In Faithful Families: Creating Sacred Moments at Home, (Chalice: 2017) author Traci Smith offers the following practice on tolerance. Excerpted with permission:

    Tolerance

    The Golden Rule

    When I lead workshops, I’m often asked, “How can we raise children who are conscious of other religions and their traditions?” Usually, my answer is that people should make sure you get to know friends of other religions and learn what is important to them. Living in a religiously diverse community is a blessing in this regard. The following simple activity is another way to get the conversation going.

    Designed for Ages 5+

    Materials

    1. Pieces of paper with the words of Luke 6:31 written on them (Luke 6:31 says, “Do to others as you would have them do to you,” in the NIV translation, but you can use whatever version of the Bible you’d like.) HERE is a coloring sheet that also works for this practice.

    2. Art supplies to decorate the page, such as crayons, markers, glitter pens, stickers, or colored pencils

    3. Poster depicting the golden rule in various religions (HERE is a link)

    Time Investment: 15–20 minutes

    How To

    1. Gather everyone together to talk about the golden rule. Say, “One of the most important things that Jesus said was that we should do to others as we would have them do to us. Some people call this ‘the golden rule.’ What does ‘the golden rule’ mean to you?”

    2. Pass out the coloring sheets and art supplies and have everyone decorate them as you continue your conversation.

    3. Say, “One interesting thing about ‘the golden rule’ is that many different religious teachers have said similar things.”

    4. Show the poster or printout of the golden rule in other religious traditions and read a few of them.

    5. Discuss the golden rule with one or more or of the following questions:

    What do you think it means that so many of the world’s religions have variations of ‘the golden rule’?

    Do you know anyone who is a member of another religion? What do you know about his/her religion? Would you like to talk with that person about the golden rule?

    Why is it important to follow ‘the golden rule’ no matter what?

    Notes

    The depth of the discussion your family is able to have will depend largely on children’s ages and exposure to interfaith discussion. This activity is a great one to pull out again every few years and see how ideas have changed and grown.

    Different faith traditions and denominations have different ways of talking about other religions in relationship to one’s own. If you have questions about how to approach this topic with your family in a manner consistent with your faith tradition, consider talking with a leader in your place of worship. When in doubt, err on the side of tolerance, love, and respect.

    Variations

    Consider inviting a friend of another religion over for a special meal.

    Skip the coloring part and just do the discussion. Conversely, do the coloring part and skip the discussion. Or, do the whole practice over two days.

    Post the golden rule poster in a prominent place in your house and refer to it often.

    Reflection by Patty Meyers, D. Min., Ed. D., president of CEF

    The great artist Michelangelo believed that inside a piece of marble an angel waited to be let out for the world to see. In order to free it, the sculptor had to chip away any part of the marble that was not a necessary part of the sculpture.

    Potters know that in each lump of clay is a potentially great piece of art. They also know that it is easy to “mess up’ a piece and that the piece they envision may not turn out the way that they intend. All kinds of things can affect the outcome.

    One thing that potters can count on is interaction with the clay. The metaphor of the potter in Jeremiah 18 is a good example, but I want to focus on the partnership between the potter and the clay.

    The clay cannot form itself into a beautiful pot. The potter must work with it. Potters get clay on their hands, under their fingernails, and long after washing, it can dry the skin and the scent of the clay may linger on the hands. Certainly the potter changes and shapes the clay but the clay changes the potter too. Pot and potter are interdependent with each other. Potters aren’t potters if they don’t work with some type of clay. Pots cannot come into being without potters.

    In her seminal book, Fashion Me a People, Maria Harris asserted that as potters “fashion” clay, so Christian educators “fashion” people. God calls us to co-create the future, to make disciples, to mold the clay of human beings into the beautiful works of art that God intends each person to be. Christian educators work with the stuff of the earth – humans – to fashion people as God intends them to be.

    How are you working to shape others in the image of the Divine? I believe that Christian education and faith formation is a holy calling and as much an art form as sculpture or pottery. I don’t think that anything more beautiful exists that a person whom God shapes, molds and changes into the full potential with the help of those who teach and learn.

    As the pot changes the potter, so those with whom we work will change us. For better or worse, life will change both. Jeremiah 1:4 says that the potter formed a marred vessel into a new one, shaping it in the say that seemed best. As you work with God to fashion a people, may the Holy One and you create something beautiful.

    Reviewed by Patty Meyers, D. Min., Ed. D., president of CEF

    “What does it mean to be a person of faith in a violent world?” Dr. Mai-Anh Le Tran asked. It’s a powerful question for Christian educators, pastors, parents, neighbors and friends.  That’s not the only hard question she asked in her book, Reset the Heart, Unlearning Violence, Relearning Hope.

    Gripped by the violence in Ferguson, Missouri, she also asked:

    • “If the church’s teaching, learning, and practice of faith is purportedly transformative, then where is faith when it is needed most?”
    • “If good all along – religious formation had been happening all along – or had it? – then why the indifference, paralysis, apathy, exasperation, and even downright resistance when a calamity occurred that could have used a faithful response? (p. 3)
    • “If God is on the side of the oppressed, why don’t they win?” (p. 8)
    • “How are Christian faith communities complicit in teaching and learning violence?”
    • “What new (or renewed) practices of faith and educational leadership can help us unlearn violence and relearn hope?” (p. 10)

    These probing questions and others were fresh for her as she stood in the rain with other people of faith outside the Ferguson city hall grief-stricken, bewildered, in a public display of witness, lament, and liturgy.  What does it mean to teach for faith formation in a time such as this?

    We too easily get caught up in hand-wringing that we mis-educate. Perhaps we think that the problem is too big to tackle and don’t pull together the resources available to at least start to make a difference. We must not lose the potential for the community to come together in a redemptive way and be swept away by our despair.  Death does not have the last word in Christian theology, resurrection does.  She calls it “resurrectional, insurrectional hope,” inspired by Paulo Friere’s “pedagogy of conscientization,” which led to a “pedagogy of hope” as a generator for justice with love.

    The death of Michael Brown was one of several acts of violence, followed by deaths in New York, Baltimore, more recently in Charlottesville, Virginia and more than will be enumerated here.

    These are real questions for real people of faith that convicted me as I read. Knowing Mai-Anh as I do, I knew that she would not leave readers in despair, though that is an appropriate response to the violent times in which we live.  As a person of faith and a Christian educator, Mai-Anh draws on the collected wisdom of scholars and theologians with her agenda for “teaching toward resurrectional, insurrectional hope, communicability, redeemability, and educability.” (p.11)

    This is not “pie in the sky, airy fairy” hope, this is the work of people of faith whatever our roles are. This book is rich in its challenges, its conversations with students, laity and clergy, with utter faith that violence will not have the last word in the church or in the streets.  This age need not be known only for its violence but for the faithfulness of people who reset their hearts.  As the song from “South Pacific” (1) says: “You’ve got to be carefully taught” to hate…and if we can learn to hate, we can learn to love.  As Rob Bell proclaimed in his book of the same name, we know the rest of the story: “Love Wins.” (2) And eternal life begins right here, right now, when love wins.

    Hope is foundational for humans to “know, be, do” (the domains of learning). If we are serious about being part of the solution and not part of the problem, if we truly care about faith formation, we will join Mai-Anh Le Tran in unlearning violence and relearning hope, to which she called Christian educators in the book’s title. Without hope, there is no reason to get up in the morning. Hope is the message that people desperately need.  Let’s get to work!

    CEF President, Patty Meyers, shares the story of two people who were instrumental in forming her faith. This essay will be part of a book celebrating the 50th anniversary of CEF. To submit your story honoring those who impacted your faith, email pattymeyers79@gmail.com.

    Tacy and Wilbur were the pillars of the church in which I grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. They were lay  persons, not clergy. Tacy was my childhood Sunday school teacher. Wilbur taught the adult Bible study. They sang in the choir and played in the band. Their children were mostly grown-up and their hearts seemed to expand for others. I called them Gram and Gramps though we were not biologically related. They both instilled in me a love of the Bible. They helped form my faith in God and helped it to expand as I grew.

    In addition to their service at the church, they were caregivers for my family. Whatever my parents knew about parenting they learned from Tacy and Wilbur. They were generous with their time, their home, and other resources. They provided child care and support for my siblings and me in numerous ways. Wilbur taught me that men could be kind and gentle, that they could listen and wipe away tears instead of causing them. Tacy taught my mom to crochet the most beautiful beaded doilies and how to braid hair. I loved to watch Tacy take down her braids at the end of the day and brush her soft gray hair.

    My mother said that Tacy decided the day I was born that I had the fingers of a pianist, and so I did. They gave me my first piano when I was five years old. I’ve never been without a piano and have been a church musician most of my life. I started teaching Vacation Bible School at age 14. They modeled being faithful to God, to each other, and all God’s children. Because I found such comfort on their back porch swing, I have always had one in my homes. I even named my beloved Chihuahua Tacy; if it had been a boy, its name would be Wilbur.

    I could tell many stories about them. I have only one photograph of them, taken Easter Sunday 1969, which I keep near my desk to look at every day. They were both “promoted to glory” in the early 1970s but I shall never forget them. They were very important to my faith formation and my development as a woman of God.  Neither they nor their children likely knew how important they were, but their faithfulness is legendary.

    Blog post submitted by The Rev. Stacy Johnson Myers, Minister of Christian Education, First Congregational Church, River Falls, Wisconsin.

    Several years ago I was talking with a group of second grade Sunday Schoolers about Zacchaeus. I asked, “Why do you think the people were surprised Jesus wanted to go to Zacchaeus’ house?” A child answered, “Because they thought Jesus would go to Moses’ house.” I paused for a moment, or probably two. Then I remembered our lectionary-based curriculum featured Moses in the previous lesson. On Monday morning I gathered construction paper, scissors, and glue sticks and made a pictorial timeline—individual pictures representing specific Bible stories. From then on I could point out in a visual way that “Moses is way back there”; “Jesus is way up here.”

    The timeline worked wonderfully. It helped my students gain a perspective of time and the progression of the overarching biblical story. They learned how individual Bible stories, events, and people fit together. It also helped my students learn to interpret the art and Bible stories.

    Fast forward many years: the timeline is still in use in Sunday School, Wednesday School, and Confirmation, in my church in River Falls, Wisconsin. We decided to commission a new set of images from a professional artist. The result is Picture the Bible.         

    Picture the Bible is a set of 36 collages that tell 36 different Bible stories, from creation through Pentecost. The images are beautiful and engaging. They portray details of stories but are not overly laden with symbolism, so they can be quickly embedded in children’s imaginations. The Picture the Bible images have had a dramatic impact on the whole congregation’s biblical literacy and interpretive skills.

    Recently we completed a set of 36 student engagement pages to correspond to each image. The pages reflect an approach to biblical study that intentionally occupies the intersection of daily life and the Bible.

    The goal of the pages is not to “tell learners what to think.” Rather, the goal is to provide a variety of “conversation centerpieces” designed to engage learners and leaders in authentic conversation about their lives, the world, and the Bible.

    For example, the page dedicated to Slavery in Egypt poses:   

    • Read the story in Exodus 1.
    • Why do you think some people hurt others?
    • At first the Egyptians welcomed the Hebrews. As the Hebrews became more powerful, the Egyptians became afraid. Why might they have been afraid?
    • Do people have to agree to get along? How so?

    Then, learners and leaders talk about this Conversation Centerpiece:

     

    “Conversation Centerpieces” put Bible stories into their own cultural contexts and connect them to learners’ lives. The pages include Martin Luther King’s mountain top speech; Ruby Bridges; carbon-14 dating, architecture, Dr. Seuss, constellations, and a wide variety of other images and topics. The student engagement pages are flexible, can be used by a wide variety of ages, are colorful, and packed with ideas.

     For more information, please visit www.picturethebible.org; follow us on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/picturethebible; or contact me at stacy@firstchurchrf.org. Congregations may purchase art reproductions, books featuring the art, a CD of images for projection in worship, and permission to download and print the student engagement pages.

    One of the great benefits of Picture the Bible is that it is truly intergenerational. The images engage young children, teens, and adults, drawing together people’s lives and the Bible—a central goal of faith formation.

    Laura Stahl is Director of Children’s and Family Ministries at First United Methodist Church, Duluth, MN (The Coppertop).  She formerly served in similar capacities at United Church of Two Harbors (MN) and Aley United Methodist Church (OH).  She lives in Two Harbors, Minnesota with her husband Dale. Together they have four foreign exchange daughters from Germany, Belgium (Flanders) and Jordan. 

    As the number of families in worship increased, it was time to move away from activity bags with crayons and children’s bulletins to more engaging worship resources that reflected the theme, scriptures, and/or season of the church.  Over time the Family Worship Resource Table has grown to include resources for toddlers through elementary-aged children.  Staff and office volunteers help to keep the activities fresh and rotate holiday and seasonal books and extras into the mix.  Below is a list of our worship table resources. For more pictures and seasonal activities, please download this Worship Activity Table Primer. 

    Children’s Bibles –Spark Story Bible, Deep Blue Story Bibles, Children of God Storybook Bible and others

    Basket of Books – board books, books for preschoolers, seasonal books (Advent/Christmas, Lent/Easter, Pentecost, All Saints/Halloween, Thanksgiving)

    Toddler Busy Boxes – homemade from large plastic canisters. I removed the center from the lid and added a slotted felt piece.  Inside are large items that toddlers can drop in and remove from the box.  Items are XL Pom Pom, Felted characters, small stuffy, large wooden doll pin, chunky heart.

    Toddler Meal Prayers or Prayer Books 

    Writing Utensils – crocks of pencils* and colored pencils* on table; bags of crayons in baskets, 1 pen & 1 dry erase crayon in each Elementary zip case

    Felt Mosaic packs – In each bag there is one piece of felt with lots of little squares or other shapes of felt.  I have some repeating suggested pictures for church seasons and regular services like communion.  I also make pictures that go with the sermon/scripture theme* of the day.

    Preschool Clipboards – Holds preschool age Children’s Worship Bulletin* (online subscription so I can choose scripture or theme)

    Elementary Packs – zip pencil packs contain 1 pen, 1 dry erase crayon, 1 small white board, 1 Pocket magazine, 1 Children’s Worship Bulletin*.

    Church Wi-Fi sign (Children’s Worship Bulletins have a game code that coordinates with the topic)

    Writing Pads & Bookmarks – I collect colorful scratch pads that charities mass mail for fundraising & change them with the season.  Curriculum bookmarks, Camp Registrations, and other resources for the taking.

    Preschool Leaflets – leftover class leaflets (aka “bulletins”) that fits the theme or from the week before. 

    *I download and copy Children’s Worship Bulletins and switch out some pictures for the Felt Mosaics at the end of each month. A regular office volunteer folds the bulletins, and switches out the bulletins and Pocket magazines. Volunteers also sharpen pencils, check crayons and straighten books.  I spend a very small amount of time checking the Toddler Busy Box and occasionally add seasonal items.

    Rev. Lisa McGehee is an ordained deacon serving Good Shepherd (Richmond) as Associate Minister. Her specialties include Adult Discipleship and Communications.

    Small groups, bible studies and support groups are opportunities to meet people where they are on their faith journey. At Good Shepherd UMC (Richmond) our Discipleship ministry has grown from seasonal studies to multiple groups meeting weekly, including a new grief support group and a Mental Wellness Ministry. What steps can you take to grow a vital Discipleship ministry so that people can develop their relationship with God and live as faithful disciples in the world?

    • 1.       Pray – seek God’s guidance – “without a vision the people will perish” – without God’s vision for Good Shepherd’s Discipleship ministry we would not be able to discern topics, leaders and needs of the congregation and community.
    • 2.       Ministry Team – it takes a village of people to implement and grow a small group and support group ministry – again, pray. Ask God to reveal potential leaders that have a heart for growing in their faith. Who in your congregation has the gifts of encouragement, faith, discipleship and/or leadership? Who has offered to lead a small group or bible study? For support groups, who has expressed a passion for an area of support, i.e. grief, divorce, mental health wellness? Invite them to join you in praying and seeking where God might be nudging them to become involved.
    • 3.       Vision – come together as a ministry team and seek God’s will for your congregation and community. What does faith formation mean to you? How do you define discipleship? What are the needs of your community? For the past two years, Good Shepherd has been in a time of discernment and Strategic Design. Throughout this process we sought God’s vision for all areas of ministry. We prayed together and listened to one another about the ways our lives had been transformed through the ministries of Good Shepherd. We also reviewed data from The Fullnsite Report available through the Conference. This report was one way we discovered the needs of the community. We learned that 33% of our neighbors were seeking support in the areas of addiction, recovery, grief, parenting development, marriage enrichment and mental wellness. Additionally, 34% were seeking prayer and bible study groups. We added these needs to our prayers.
    • 4.       Discernment – equipped with prayer, stories and data, our Becoming (Discipleship) Ministry continued to discern how we could best live into God’s call on our community of faith. This discernment occurred during several meetings in the summer. We went back to the vision for Good Shepherd to be “a place where lives are transformed through grace.” Grace and hope are the foundations for all that we offer at Good Shepherd. We heard that our congregation had embraced Sunday School, small groups and bible studies for all ages but the missing link was topical support groups. Parents of children and youth desired to gather to support one another. Those grieving the loss of loved ones and those who were experiencing mental wellness situations sought faith-based support. From these conversations and prayer, we discerned that for 2016-17 we would offer a grief support group, a divorce support group, develop a Mental Wellness Ministry, and offer parenting support groups for parents. These opportunities would be available for the congregation and the community.
    • 5.       Implementation – we continue to surround these new ministries in prayer. The grief support group began in September with three facilitators and eight participants (with an equal number of congregation members and community participants). An information session was held about the ministry and the three facilitators each shared that because of their own experiences with grief and healing they felt called to the ministry. A group of mental health professionals, school leaders and staff have developed a plan for a Mental Wellness Ministry. A sermon in September kicked-off the ministry which includes an information page on our website (gsumcrva.org/mentalwellness) and partnering with the local NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) to offer support groups. Our Children and Youth Ministries are partnering with parents to discern support group models that will fit their needs.

    We are excited to see not only the development of these new initiatives but how lives will be transformed through the healing grace of God.

    One of my favorite summer reads so far is The Book of Joy, Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by his Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu with Douglas Abrams © 2016, Avery, an imprint of Penguin Random House. Few could argue that both spiritual leaders have suffered greatly throughout their lives, but when these octogenarians got together to celebrate their birthdays, they giggled like a couple of kids. The book is drawn from conversations held during a week in Dharmasala.

    Each chapter contains golden nuggets mined from their years of experience. From beginning to end they model the way that people of faith who practice different religions can live together peaceably and joyfully without any type of diminishment. They echoed something that Vaclav Havel said to the U. S. Congress more than 30 years ago:

    The salvation of this human world lies nowhere else than in the human heart, in the human power to reflect, in human meekness and human responsibility. Accessed 6-23-17, http://www.azquotes.com/quote/126500.

    The two declared that “lasting happiness…resides only in the human mind and heart, and it is here that we hope you will find it.”

    Their conversation ranged from scientific research to faith to human experience, from the reality of suffering and the obstacles to joy to chortles of glee amid a world full of fear.  In the final section of the book they name “the eight pillars of joy”: perspective, humility, humor, acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, compassion, and generosity.” The book also includes “joy practices.”

    It’s a delightful, thought-provoking read. I recommend it.

    Blessings,

    Patty Meyers

    CEF Board President
