Lamb Watch has become something of a tradition at University Congregational UCC with our Pastor Catherine Foote and her flock at home.
Pastor Catherine lives on Sleeping Dog Farm and has a small herd of sheep, along with other farm animals, like a flock of chickens. For the last several years, she has included her Facebook community in the annual “watching” for new lambs to be born to her ewes. This year, she has begun posting daily Lamb watch updates on the UCUCC Facebook page live at 9 am – showing her sheep in their daily “stay at home” life.
As the lamb watch season goes on, the excitement of waiting for new life gets more and more palpable – when will the first lamb be born? Boy or girl? What color will it be? Twins or a single lamb? How many will be born altogether? For those who don’t get to experience life on a farm especially, it’s a little peek into that life.
This year, we have something extra to share! Our Christian Formation team at UCUCC has put together this Lamb Watch 2020 Activity Book for children of all ages to enjoy as we move through the season. Just click on the link, and print out as many copies as your family would like!
Thank you to Catherine, Margaret and Jennifer for making lamb watch so engaging!
