Last Sunday’s sermon (“After The Storm”) included this litany from the book Grandparenting By Grace, authored by Irene Endicott and C. Ferris Jordan:
We are teachers of God’s plan of salvation to our children and grandchildren.
We are witnesses of how God has proven faithful to his people and to our family.
We are family historians, holding keys to learning about family roots and experiences for generations to come.
We are a safe refuge for our grandchildren in times of trouble.
We are a soft shoulder in sorrow and an encourager of new beginnings.
We represent stability to young families in dealing with change.
We undergird our grandchildren with faithful prayer.
