Winnipeg, Man. —For the past year, Chris and Selah have been taking young children on a journey discovering the deeper faith meaning of Lent and Advent. Now, parents of those children are invited to enter a draw for Chris and Selah action figures.

Chris and his pet bird Selah were introduced to children in Mennonite Church Canada congregations through the pages of the 2011 Lent worship-at-home booklet titled Called and Shaped by Jesus. Later in the year, Surprised by Awesome Deeds followed the journey of Chris and Selah into Advent, 2011. In 2012, the pair find a new friend, Gloria, in the newest Lent booklet, Sign Up and Follow Jesus. My Worship n’ Colour Book is a complementary activity booklet designed to further engage children in Chris and Selah’s adventures.

Now children can win a Chris and Selah doll to deepen the connection. The characters, designed by Megan Kamei, Graphic Designer, and brought to life as action figures by volunteer, Mary Funk, will be awarded in a May 1, 2012 draw. To enter, parents are asked to complete any of the surveys related to worship-at-home resources (check the back cover of each title for a survey link). All Chris and Selah booklets can be found at
