The Easter Story

by | Apr 2, 2010 | Faith

Each year in BSF, we are given a wonderful tool of how to teach our children about Easter. It’s a page from their Home Training Lessons.  It has always been a great help to me as a parent.  But actually, this can be a great help to all of us to understand the Easter story and the significance of this day…whether we have children or not.  I encourage you to read through the scriptures passages below…for yourself and/or with your children.  As a suggestion, you could read a couple of them today, two tomorrow, and end with the last one on Sunday.  Or do the whole thing on Sunday.  (If you don’t have a Bible, you can log onto http://www.biblegateway.com/ and type in the selected passages in the “search” area.  I use the New International Version.)  Bill, Ali, Zach and I will again be reading this together this weekend.  It truly helps us keep our focus on what Easter is really all about.

Enjoy learning and/or teaching the Easter story!
