Nurturing Faith Ideas
Nurturing Faith Ideas are weekly suggestions and activities from the Presbytery's Nurture Committee to link worship and home and to nurture faith development in the family. They are intended for all ages and family types. Add one to your bulletin each week or put them in your monthly newsletter. They could also be sent via email or added to a Facebook page. Ideas for the entire year can be found  here.

In Luke 24: 36b-48, Jesus appeared in the midst of the disciples and greeted them saying, "Peace be with you," to which the disciples responded with terror and doubt. How often do we respond with our own feelings of terror and doubt when we hear Jesus calling to us? Take some time this week to list the doubts, fears and shortcomings that prevent you from doing what you know to be right. 

April 22
In  1 John 3:16-24, John writes of love, specifically the love of Jesus and how it models the love we are called to have for our neighbors, and asks, "How does God's love abide in anyone who has the world's goods and sees a brother or sister in need and refuses to help?" He then calls us to love in "truth and action" not in "word or speech." This week, when you consider telling someone you will pray for them, pray with them on the spot. When you recognize a need, fulfill it in the moment (when feasible). Do for the one what you wish you could do for the many.
