Children's Sabbath is an opportunity to support well-being of children.

"Blessed to Be a Blessing: Lifting Up the Next Generation" is the theme for the Children's Defense Fund's 2010 Children's Sabbaths weekend on Oct. 15-17. The observance aims to unite religious congregations of all faiths across the nation in shared concern for children and common commitment to improving their lives.

Kim Ebersole, director of the Church of the Brethren's Family Life Ministry, encourages congregations to observe Children's Sabbaths weekend through worship, prayer, and education programs for all ages.

"The Church of the Brethren has long been concerned with the well-being of children," she said. "This special observance is an opportunity to reflect on the teachings of our faith, learn more about the needs of children, and explore ways to make our communities better places for kids and families."
