Jesus called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts; but to wear sandals and not to put on two tunics.
Jesus said to them, “Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave the place. If any place will not welcome you and they refuse to hear you, as you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as a testimony against them.”
So the twelve went out and proclaimed that all should repent. They cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.

Family friendly Faith Exploration
2021 Year of the Family
To celebrate THE YEAR OF THE FAMILY,
• Inspire conversations
• Invite playful prayer
• Creatively ‘waste time’ with God
• Wonder as you wander
• Explore and discover, indoors and outdoors, alone, and together
The materials in the package are only suggestions. Use what appeals to you, courageously try others that appear outside your comfort zone and feel free to adapt any or all to your specific situation. Together, as we engage the world in which we “live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28), we are united in prayer.
