Monday Morning Material: Part 3 of Living Traditions

This week we will look at:

3.Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;

We will read Each Breathe A Smile, follow recipes from the Tasty Bible Stories Matching Recipes book, and other resources.

This is one of the easiest parts of the living tradition because not only can the children grasp the concepts without much more explanation, and it allows us to pull some of our favorite books from our library shelves. What books would you recommend?

Additional ideas:
Find someone in the community who shares a different religion than yours and ask if they would mind sharing it with your children.
Observe a religious ceremony.

Books for Kids

Books for Parents
This is a great resource

Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;

Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.

Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
