On the Great Lawn – Everyone Welcome!
This lesson is based on Psalm 4:8- ” I will both lie down and sleep in peace; for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety. We will talk about everyday fears, which are healthy (like running if an animal is chasing you) and which are unhealthy (like being too shy or not believing in yourself). Answers will vary and we will analyze them under the light of faith to determine if we are embracing at any given moment faith or fear? We will learn that establishing a faith filled life allows us to live and rest with peace in our hearts and on our pillows. I pray the children will continue to deposit their cares, worries, anxieties and fears upon the Lord and that the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will embrace them even while they sleep😇.
