The Power of a Symbol
July 4, 2018

Today we're talking about symbols. A symbol is an object that has meaning attached to it, but it is also a great tool in the parent’s tool belt.

Here are some examples of important symbols you may have in your life that carry important meaning:

  • a wedding ring
  • refrigerator art from when your teenager was a child
  • a family heirloom that was passed down to you
  • a moment in time that was captured in a photograph
  • an item from your childhood home that takes you back in time when you look at it

Symbols are powerful. Today I would like to suggest that you harness the power of symbols to help pass down faith to your teenager.

Here's a video that helps you do that. 

This online Parenting Class is our way to encourage you as a parent. Your job is so important, and we are cheering you on as you pass down faith to your teenager.

This month's video refers to symbols in the Rites of Passage Experience. Here's the link to the Rites of Passage Resources.

As always, please feel free to contact me with questions, comments or concerns at or contact Pastor Greg at the church at 519-471-1250.

With blessings,
