A Child of God: Stories of Jesus and Stewardship Activities for Children



A Child of God: Stories of Jesus and Stewardship Activities for Children bridges faith in the wisdom of Jesus Christ with a deep caring for the natural world and all our brothers and sisters. Original versions of stories from the New Testament take children on a journey through the miracles and adventures of Jesus' life as a guide for living in a connected way with all of Creation. The stories begin with Jesus' birth and go on to show how he lived a life close to nature. Children see how Jesus finds God in the wilderness. Caduto provides reflections and activities that serve as stepping stones for growing children's faith, for exploring and strengthening their relationship to nature and humankind, and for giving thanks. A Child of God can be used directly by children in the middle-to-upper elementary years, ages 8 to 12, and it can be adapted for younger and older children. It can be shared by teachers, families and congregations, among friends and across generations. A Child of God leads young hearts and minds to understand the vitality of prayer, the sanctity of Creation and the importance of stewardship and celebration. It will helps young readers to see the stories of their own lives as exciting journeys, and how Jesus can guide them toward a prayerful, caring celebration of nature and community.
