We need an inner space where stillness lives.

Beneath my skin
I’m flesh and bone;
There’s more to me than you can see.
Life is for living now;
Not moaning or groaning,
Life is for living now ! (WOW)
I’m glad I’m alive, I’m glad that I see
There’s never been anyone quite like me.
I am a lovable person,

And the crying people wipe away their tears.

Join us for this three part series led by local and national speakers who will share practical ideas for how parents, grandparents, teachers, and friends can nurture spirituality and build lives filled with meaning, both for ourselves and for our children. Light refreshments and childcare will be provided. Validation for parking at the UW Bookstore is available.read more

1. Let’s play at being ice,
As cold as frost and snow,
Bringing sleeping time
When life can grow.
1. I would like to be like Jesus,
Gentle, loving, strong and true.
I would like to be like Jesus
And see God in me and you.
1. If I scramble up a hill,
If I climb into a tree,
If I look out from a cliff,
I can see and see and see.
1. Christmas is a time for children,
Time for presents, fun and play.
Christmas is a time for children,
Let’s all be children on this Christmas Day.

let the manger shape our minds,
the baby touch our hearts,
the mother bless our flesh.
