The Beatitudes Lesson Nine:
Blessed Are the Peacemakers
In this week's lesson, students learn about the seventh blessing and promise of the Beatitudes. They will develop an understanding of the word "peace" that transcends lack of conflict and explore what it means to be a peacemaker. They will receive a challenge to make peace in the world around us.

Parents may talk with children about what symbolizes peace for them. How do you feel when you are at peace? Who are you with? Where are you sitting? Children may create an emoji or symbol to represent what shalom means to them. The image may be a facial expression or an object that brings them peace. Children are encouraged to share their peace emojis with us. Email Mary Beth or post it on social media and tag CSMSG.

Children's book recommendations to accompany this lesson are When Aidan Became a Brother, written by Kyle Lukoff and illustrated by Kaylani Juanita; Red: A Crayon's Story, written and illustrated by Michael Hall; We Are Water Protectors, written by Carole Lindstrom and illustrated by Michaela Goade; Something Happened in Our Town: A Child's Story About Racial Injustice, written by Marianne Celano, Marietta Collins, and Ann Hazzard and illustrated by Jennifer Zivoin.

The next Beatitudes curriculum packet will be available for pick up at the Sunday Outdoor Children's Eucharist. If you are unable to attend but would like arrange to pick up a Beatitudes packet, please email Mary Beth Tipton at
