We all hold an interesting collection of knowledge in our minds. Some people know a lot about automobiles. Others might know a great deal about knitting. Elisa Wells knows a few things about baking. She was kind enough to share her baking skills recently in our RE classroom. We began class by sharing our names, providing an offering or blessing, and welcoming one another into the RE kitchen. Elisa began the lesson by showing our young people a bread recipe and talking about how recipes help us to make sure that our baking projects stay balanced. Next, the students took turns measuring and pouring ingredients into bowls. There were squeals of excitement as we watched the yeast mix with the water, begin to bubble, and finally start to grow! From there, our RE class carefully added flour and took turns stirring until the liquid turned into a sticky dough. We divided the dough equally so that everyone would have a balanced piece and began to create shapes. After adding some salt to our shapes, they went into the oven to bake for a balanced amount of time. We all enjoyed tasting our balanced bread that we created in community together!
What knowledge are you holding onto? How might your presence bring balance to our children's, youth, or adult communities?
