You're welcome to do this activity before going through the rest of this content.
When you enter a house seeking lodging, say, “Peace on this house!” If a child of peace—one who welcomes God’s message of peace—is there, your peace will rest on him. If not, don’t worry; nothing is wasted. Stay where you’re welcomed. Become part of the family, eating and drinking whatever they give you. You’re My workers, and you deserve to be cared for. Again, don’t go from house to house, but settle down in a town and eat whatever they serve you. Heal the sick and say to the townspeople, “The kingdom of God has come near to you."
- What does it mean that Peace comes from God? Not from our peers, ourselves, or from others?
- How do you feel peace right now?
- Where do you not see peace?
- Where do you need peace?
Challenge this week:
You have three! You are invited to do one, both, or neither. It's a challenge that's being placed on you by Jon. He'd like you to do it. But like it's a challenge, and you're invited to it.
1: Write a card of peace to someone you don't want to give peace to. Then place it in your dresser, bedside table, or hidden in a yearbook from a couple years ago.
2: Share a photo that reflects Peace to you. Then share that with Jon either by text or to the church's Instagram Page.
3: Print out and color the following palm leaf to be included in next Sunday's Online Worship as we celebrate Palm Sunday! Once you have your palm leaf colored. Take a photo of the leaf and yourself in it! Then please send the photo to Jon by Tuesday, March 31 so we can have it included in the Palm Sunday Worship Service.
Click here to print out the leaf.
(Please note: as you share the photo to Jon, you are agreeing to the photos being used in St. Michael's social media accounts. )
