As you can see below, we had fun making candles with Pastor Ken last Saturday.
Book Club is underway again, and happening this Friday at my house, 6-8pm.
The girls are reading fairy tales collected by the Brothers Grimm and we will be discussing the first few chapters of The Mysterious Benedict Society. The boys are reading the Buddha comic/graphic novel and creating their very own trading cards based on characters from the book.
The annual church picnic at Dragon Park will be this Sunday after the morning gathering. We will have several fun yard games and, I'm sure, lots of great food.
With the end of summer :( comes the end of our summer arts program. This also means we will (soon) not be gathering to make art on Sundays. Instead, the middle school and high school kids will meet with the DPC adults for the new class series provided by Open Table of Nashville. These classes will provide resources and a safe space to discuss ways we can better interact with our homeless friends and neighbors. Several guest speakers will join us throughout the series. Folks, I am excited about this opportunity!
The elementary kids will be meeting in the snack room as usual, but will focus on the lessons taught using the curriculum Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.
Our annual art show is coming up (Saturday, September 3)! The Ritual of Play, featuring local artists, namely, the youth of DPC.
That's all for now. I hope to see you Friday (book club) and Sunday (our last day of art).
