Six New Things – Supplemental

Yesterday’s post focused on anti-racism/white supremacy resources. Today’s offers more general resources (and a couple newly discovered justice resources), with a focus on summer activities for children and families, Covid-19 responses, and more; starting with Superheroes Don’t Babysit (Beaming), which explores sibling rivalry and includes a Superhero Mask Activity Sheet.

Susan Alexander Yates offers a gift from her book, Cousin Camp: a free downloadable Camp at Home: 100 practical ideas for families, with ideas for things to do with toddlers to teens and the whole family.

Beaming offers a free downloadable Summer Reading Bingo Board and an Activities and Resources for Summer based on a number of their children’s books.

Covid-19-related resources from MennoMedia include a small group study/personal reflection, Beyond Our Fears: Following Jesus in a Time of Crisis and Rejoice! A Time of Enduring, for personal devotions and from Lewis Center for Church Leadership, Religion and Science: Pathways to Truth invites us to live as “scientifically informed believers”.

Faith leaders may find affirmation, support, and inspiration in M. Craig Barnes’ Diary of a Pastor’s Soul: The Holy Moments in a Life of Ministry (Baker) and Church Anew’s blog – written by international theological thinkers and leaders – on topics from Covid-19 closures and reopening to racism and white supremacy culture.
