Today's theme was the circus! We dressed up in costumes,
tried magic tricks and juggling,
and enjoyed face painting and making balloon animals!
Our guest, P.T. Barnum, grew up in a church where he heard stories about an angry God who wanted to punish people. At 15, he and his family began attending a Universalist Church. The God he learned about there forgave rather than punished, and thought that all people deserved to be happy and be valued. Barnum liked those ideas and became a Universalist for the rest of his life. He tried to bring excitement and joy to other's lives, and worked to make the world a fairer place.
