Welcome to Tending the Garden of our Hearts, offering short, joyful lessons on Orthodox Christian themes to equip your family. Our meditations, whether in podcast, book or video form, engage children and adults alike, equipping us to explore the faith together.
We offer a variety of resources for your Little Church! We offer a weekly podcast on Ancient Faith Radio, a virtual Vacation Church Camp, a Lenten meditations book, a series of weekly lessons on the Parables for families and Sunday schools, and even a Facebook community!
Our weekly lessons on the Parables are still available (in both podcast and written form) with coordinating printable activities to equip you for religious education, whether in your home or your classroom. Whether your parish is able to provide Sunday school or not, you’ll have the podcast plus a lesson plan and printables to keep your Little Church growing together in the Faith!
We are also excited about Rooted in Prayer: A Virtual Vacation Church Camp Kit which includes videos, activities, games, and discussion prompts so that you and your family — or perhaps even your whole parish — can enjoy five day-long sessions of a socially distanced camp or retreat. You’ll find this set of videos and PDFs at the Ancient Faith Store and you’ll find CeCe’s wonderful original songs at https://www.ceceyentzen.com/rootedinprayer!
We ran a special video edition of our podcast (our Virtual Sunday School!) through Pentecost (June 7, 2020) and you can still find all of those videos and materials in our archives.
