The Children’s Word: Eat, Drink, and Be Merry?

The Children’s Word: Eat, Drink, and Be Merry?


Welcome to The Children’s Word, a weekly ministry of the Orthodox Christian Network brought to you by Presvytera Alexandra Houck!

This week, Pres. Alexandra asks what you would do if you had all the free time you can possibly imagine. If you could do whatever you wanted to, what would you do? This week, we hear a story in the Gospels about a man who had that free time and decided to have lots of parties. You can also read about St. George of Chios, who made a big mistake, and you can color and do a word search.
