This week we talked about Psalm 23, which was included in the lectionary.
We watched a video and talked about how God cares for us the way a shepherd cares for sheep, lifting away all that “weighs us down” and anointing us with oil to mark us as God’s and to protect us.
We also watched these videos and talked about God comforting us through anxiety and providing calm and rest.
We talked about finding ways throughout the week to “lie down in green pastures” with God. I reminded the youth that all St. Mark’s services are recorded and available on YouTube, and encouraged them to take some time this week to listen to the service while doing chores or taking a walk
