Our theme this Spring continues our Create in Me series, based on Psalm 51. The message of Easter is the dawn of a new creation! We will engage this theme in worship and in our programming in a variety of ways, specifically focusing on creating joy, awe, wonder, and kindness. Here are some resources for youth:
- Watch this video from pastor and author Rob Bell about rediscovering wonder and awe.
- Attend the "Movies that Move" event at Plymouth at 6:00 on Saturday, April 14 to watch Coco. The film centers on aspiring musician Miguel. He is confronted with his family's ancestral ban on music, and enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer. It won the Academy Award for best Animated Feature Film.
- Learn a spiritual practice about living with more joy and gratitude in this short blog post.
