Hello Redeemer Family!
As we look towards Easter Sunday, some of us parents (or maybe it’s just me) may start to feel a gnawing sense of guilt about all the “right” things we want to say or do with our children on this milestone in the church year. Do we do resurrection eggs? Wait, what are resurrection eggs? Do we have an Easter egg hunt? Baskets? Does one dress up in self isolation? There are loads of Pinterest activities that we may choose to do with our children. However you choose to spend your upcoming Easter weekend, I want to encourage you in the truth that the Easter story is the same account we have been sharing with our children during the rest of the year. The pressure is off! The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the climax of the gospel story, but as a church we don't limit our proclamation of the resurrection to one Sunday a year. On this special Sunday, let’s rejoice in the resurrection of our king, and look for ways to point our children’s eyes to this truth in the next few days!
What follows is a list of resources to tell the story and encourage our families. There may be a few arts and crafts projects for those of you with such talents!
1. Where to read/ hear the story with our children
2. Additional resources and activities
Even though we are rejoicing and celebrating Easter in our self isolation, we still are living through an unprecedented and scary time. Kristen Wetherell wrote an article for Risen Motherhood about how we discuss fears with our children, both theirs and ours. Good Read!
Happy Easter family! He is risen!
