Youth Activities from Heather
Compassion helps us see and welcome.
Compassion helps us be present with each other. When we follow God’s Spirit and are open to the people we encounter along the way, they can experience God’s Spirit through our care. When we are being present with each other we let go of our own expectations, be flexible, and trust the Spirit, as we seek to lead compassionate lives. 

Live in love and smile!
Heather
Dinner table talk: 
How does compassion (seeing, feeling, easing hurt) help us be present?
What do you think it means to be with people in their hurt?
How can you be with someone while they are hurting?

Chester Whigget of the world famous Popsicle Stick Theater tells the story of the Book of Ruth.

Prayer for Remembrance Day:
God, we give thanks:
For peacekeepers;
for those who served in times of war;
for those who volunteered and those who waited anxiously at home;
for those who hoped that things would get better,
and those who could not stand by and wait.
We give thanks for those who believed that the world could be a better place.
We remember those who died and those that came home injured.
We pray for all who are angry, jealous, and greedy and are hateful- bring them peace.
We give thanks for those who were once enemies and now call each other “friend”. Amen

Compassion Camp Sunday
“Compassion Camp Family Services” are online each Sunday at 10:30am. The worship is designed for the whole family. During these gatherings we learn what it means to have compassion for others, ourselves, and the world. We sing, pray, share and listen to God’s word. There are activities to do as a family and ones to share to our wider community. Packages can be dropped off at your home or can be picked up at the Church. These packages will help you get the full experience of “Compassion Camp”. Children, youth and adult volunteers are needed to help with scripture, prayers and skits.
Please contact Heather (heathermargerisontrillium@gmail.com) to receive the camp packages. 
Craft Time
Since it is hard to be physically present with others because of physical distancing, we can be spiritually present with others by leaving signs of hope on our windows or on our front doors. The sign of the “Poppy” tells people that we are hopeful for a peaceful world and that we remember all those who try or have tried to make it that way. Make a Poppy Wreath to hang in your window or on your outside door to show that you remember and have hope.
