Scribe Tribe Week 1

Scribe Tribe is an after school writing group.  I want to instill in the kids the fun of writing “God Stuff”.  Our first week was creating a gratitude journal and then the expectation is that the kids will write 3 things each week that they are grateful for.  I love the idea from Ann @ A Holy Experience.

This week we will talk about St. Theresa–her feast day is Monday, October 1st.  She was a writer so that fits in with our theme.  We will talk about adoration and the meditations–Gretchen O’Connor and I trade-off writing them–I want to emphasize that writing can be important even when you are an adult.  We will be writing prayers this week.

Next week we will talk about St. Francis–his feast day is on Thursday October 4th.  I may do a St. Francis craft.

My intention is to update this joyful learning website with information about Scribe Tribe–I will send out an email reminding the kids to bring journal to class.  I want to offer this curriculum to any parent/teacher that wishes to use it.

Be Blessed.

Grasp or Gasp (Five Minute Friday)

Go:  I can’t get my head around it.  I can’t grasp the depth of the situation.

One minute a women is going about her life and within a week’s hospital stay she is gone.

I can’t grasp what it must be like for the husband . . . to wake up alone.

I can’t grasp what it must be like for the kids. . . not to get tucked in.

I can’t grasp what it must be like for the parents. . .

I get that people die, but sometimes it just doesn’t seem right.  If feels off, out of balance, a strange shift . . . messy.

I’ve written about this all week long and I still can’t grasp, or hold on to, or understand the why. . .

STOP.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
