Tonight we worked on a little art project that we'll be using during the Cookie Baking Nights ahead. Phase 1: Decorate a paper heart. Check. (More to come on that later).
Instead of reading from Sammy and His Shepherd tonight, we talked about Good Friday which falls at the end of this week. We read (lesson 40) "Jesus Died For Us" from Leading Little Ones to God by Marian Scholland. In this candy egg culture that we're living in Good Friday is certainly being ignored and why we celebrate Easter at all is getting pushed to the background (even among the church-going crowd). We talked about why the Friday when Jesus died could be called "good" (forgiveness of sins) and what happened the following Sunday (he rose from the dead). Ethan read John 19:11-18 for us from the Bible.
As usual, a fun time was had by all!
