Listen to the Children: Epiphany Year A, Worship Resource For Justice Seekers
Our hearts are torn the deepest by the stories of injustice to young ones - the memories of children in Residential Schools, of young Indigenous girls gone missing, of Palestinian children taken from their beds by Occupation soldiers, of children around the world suffering under the wreckage of war, climate catastrophes, and colonial poverty. Hearing these cries pulls us deeper into the justice seeking work, yet the cries of pain are not all that children offer. The young among us have something to say.
Our God listens to the children, relies on them, calls everyone to be like them, empowers them. The season of Epiphany centres on Jesus as a child to young adult. We are inspired to consider how a child, and many children, lead us to transformation. These stories embolden our faith and inform how we listen to today's children. God hears their cry. God knows their strength. How are we called to respond to these voices - in care and in solidarity?
Listen to the Children is structured around the eight-week Epiphany season using some of the Year A lectionary Scriptures and some additional Scriptures chosen to highlight the stories of children in the Bible. Resources for each week include: a theological reflection, a prayer, a children's reflection, plus a two-sided handout/bulletin insert highlighting the voices of children, justice information and action suggestions.
Use in your own church or gather your neighbours for an ecumenical community worship service.
