Traditioned Innovation

Thank you Richard Topping, for sharing this.  Try new things.  Experiment.  And rapidly scale what works. Summarized in poem by Mary Oliver:

I did think, let’s go about this slowly.
This is important. This should take
some really deep thought. We should take
small thoughtful steps.

But, bless us, we didn’t.

Great Bible for Children – The Jesus Storybook Bible

I can recommend this Bible for children.  Great for parents to read to children and children to read to parents.  Tells the story and interprets its meaning as it goes.  Really good.  The Jesus Storybook Bible

From the publisher’s website:

“The Moonbeam Award Gold Medal Winner in the religion category, The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the Story beneath all the stories in the Bible. At the center of the Story is a baby, the child upon whom everything will depend. Every story whispers his name. From Noah to Moses to the great King David—every story points to him. He is like the missing piece in a puzzle—the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together. From the Old Testament through the New Testament, as the Story unfolds, children will pick up the clues and piece together the puzzle. A Bible like no other, The Jesus Storybook Bible invites children to join in the greatest of all adventures, to discover for themselves that Jesus is at the center of God’s great story of salvation—and at the center of their Story too.”
