In the first episode of a brand-new series, pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve start to explore and highlight different media they find useful for exploring faith with children and youth, whether resources for Christian education in churches, children's books for at home, or videos and authors that they find helpful for deepening their own faith.  As we start the series, we're introduced to the child-friendly but also surprisingly deep writings (and drawings) of Daniel Erlander, whose insights might at first seem as simple as his pen-and-ink, hand-lettered drawing style, but who is able to express powerful insights and recurring themes in the Scriptures through easy to understand illustrations.  He has resources specific to church like, like for teaching about baptism, Holy Communion, or the basics of the Christian faith, and also longer works, like his retelling of the whole Bible's story, as "God's unfolding promise to mend the entire universe."  If you've never seen or heard any of Erlander's writings, this is a good introduction--join the conversation here on Crazy Faith Talk!
