Bless This Mess: Christian Community & Support for Pandemic Parenting
Thursdays at 7:30 PM starting on September 3 - November 19 (meeting every other Thursday)
If parenting weren't already messy, these days it seems almost impossible to raise children during a pandemic while maintaining sanity. Now is the time for parents and grandparents to come together to support each other. So this fall we will create conversation circles of Christian support centering on UCC minister Rev. Molly Baskette's book, "Bless this Mess." This book is the rare parenting book that combines both progressive Christian values and sound child psychology. Order your copy now in preparation for this series.
From the book description, "In Bless This Mess, readers will gain constructive tools as they learn how to talk to their children about social justice, money, God, ethics, bullying, disabilities, sexuality, and their bodies. Parents will also glean insights on how to serve others with joy, give generously and gratefully, and—perhaps most important—learn how to stop being so afraid all the damn time, even while raising kids in an increasingly chaotic and often scary world. With real-life examples, relatable personal stories, and strategies tailored to the toddler, preteen, or teenager, Bless This Mess guides parents of children at all stages of their development."
