Certainly, one of the reasons that we added the Lectionary Links section to this blog was our belief that children’s books could provide bridges that link the stories of our faith with the stories of literature. And we especially love hearing how our readers have made those links.
Carla Pratt Keyes, minister at Ginter Park Presbyterian Church in Richmond, VA, frequently uses children’s literature in just that way. On a recent Sunday, she made her own link and we thought you might like to see how she used an entirely different book than the one in our link to illustrate her sermon on February 20. Click here to read her sermon that connects I Corinthians 3:10-11, 16-23 and Richard Scarry’s What Do People Do All Day?
We always hoped this blog would be a conversation where others would share how they are using children’s and young adult literature in their ministry. So let us here from you!
