Benny Bit: Prayer helps us remember those in prison
Children and youth are focusing on prayer in September as a part of a Benedictine theme in Sunday school and through the Episcopal Youth Community (EYC) activities. We’ve created the “fives” which are pray, give, worship, serve and love. These “fives” will guide us to stay mindful of ways that we can serve God with purpose.
Recently, children and teens got an opportunity to create place mats for inmates through the Kairos Prison Ministry.
The mission of the Kairos Prison Ministry is to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities.
Children and teens learned that those in prison are lonely and are separated from family and friends. The children created colorful place mats and prayed for the inmates, their families and those who seek to minister to them through the Kairos Prison Ministry; see our children at work.
