The Children’s Word: Look for Christ First!

The Children’s Word: Look for Christ First!


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

This week, Presvytera Alexandra wonders if you’ve ever wanted something so much that you couldn’t think about anything else. What was it? Was it something you really needed? Read this week’s newsletter to find out what we all really need more than anything else. You can also learn about two people named Julian – they might both want you to follow them, and then what would you do? There’s also a coloring page, an icon activity, and a word search for you to enjoy.

Jason Houck, is a priest at St. Mary's Greek Orthodox Church in Minneapolis, MN. Presvytera Alexandra and Fr. Jason have five small children: Lydia, Paul, Silas, Philip, and Sarah. Presvytera Alexandra grew up attending Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Asheville, North Carolina with her nine siblings.
