30 Minute Program



Picturing God is a Christian faith formation book for children--and adults too! Enjoy a read-aloud and conversation with the author, considering what it means that God is a Mother, a Father, our Light, our Rock, our Bread of Life. Questions about the book's intriguing mosaic/collage art are also welcome.

Appropriate for a single child, a small group, or even a whole Sunday school class.
