This manual serves as a guide for you and your faith community to engage in year-round child and family advocacy work and celebrating the National Observance of Children’s Sabbaths® Weekend. The manual includes resources for worship services, education programs, direct service activities, and social justice initiatives for your congregation, organization or community.
This year's manual focuses on answering Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King's call to build and be the Blessed Community where all children can live out their God-given potential. In the last years of his life, Dr. King warned against the triple dangers of materialism, militarism, and racism, and called on us as a nation and as a people of faith to respond. How we respond to these urgent national crises at the intersection of poverty and race will determine how much our children have to struggle to find and remain on their paths to living and thriving as individuals and members of our broader community.
This easy-to-use manual provides worship materials for Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Bahá'í, and other faith traditions, and resources for an interfaith gathering. It also offers bulletin inserts, ideas for hands-on service and advocacy efforts, guidance for strengthening your efforts for children throughout the year, and much more.
