Welcome to The Sunday Paper! We are a family business and
we still go by the principles set forth in the first ad flyer we sent out, way back in 1980: “The
Sunday Paper is informal, whimsical, faithful to Scripture, and in dead earnest. It is not condescending
or cute. It helps children to acquire a vocabulary of crucial Scriptural images, and to relate the Gospel
to the Old Testament, the life of the Church, and their own lives.”
The Sunday Paper (age 9 and up) and The
Sunday Paper Junior (ages 3 to 10) are distributed electronically, as .pdf files attached to emails sent at intervals by church season.
Full-sized samples may be downloaded from the “Subscriptions”
page of this web site. At the “Order Form”
tab is a form that you may paste into an email and fill out, or may print out and mail or scan it. We hope to transition to full online ordering in due time, but for the moment these methods do work!
In 2014 I completed a full revision and updating of our lectionary materials, to reflect the latest changes in the Revised Common Lectionary (Episcopal Church
usage) and to improve their graphic quality. If you have been recycling back issues, you may wish to re-subscribe
to take advantage of these changes!
We offer a great deal more than lectionary
cartoons. Our books on the sacraments for children, Alleluia! Amen
(Eucharist) and New Life (Baptism) have been best-sellers for many years. Our collection
of Christmas pageant scripts, Go, Tell It on the Mountain, is going into a new edition with four scripts instead of three.
Our brightly colored interactive feltboard system, Beulah Land, puts The Sunday Paper’s visual
vocabulary in your hands—and your kids’ hands—for storytelling and play, and as an inspiration for children’s
artwork. Beulah Land also has a complete 39-week curriculum, centered on worship, song, story and art response,
and widely adaptable for many different settings. We also offer our proprietary wooden play sets, as well as a small
collection of puzzles and a banner pattern.
Our resources open doors not only to “Christian education” but also to liturgy and play. Sacrament and celebration,
pageants and prayer, are as much a part of Christian education as Bible study. Liturgy in which children
are full participants is the oldest Christian curriculum and still the best. In a culture saturated with
stimulation and “fun,” we offer simple, time-tested materials that invite children to wonder, to imagine, to pretend,
and to make the stories and rituals of our faith a part of their inmost selves.
