Discovery is following the theme of Building Bridges this semester. This week we had an interesting discussion about different faith practices across five religions after watching this short video about five children preparing to go to their places of worship. We discussed, in particular, the practices of washing, head coverings, wearing shoes or not, giving money, and praying. We hope you can take five minutes to enjoy this video as well. Perhaps it will prompt further discussion at home. We began to talk about the ways that we prepare ourselves (or don’t) to come to our place and time of worship.
Their Lenten challenge for the week is, thinking about this video, to figure out if they see any rituals of their faith in their family life during the week and not just at church.
