It is Good Friday today. A day when we pause to consider the sacrifice made by Christ on the cross, even as we look forward with joy celebrating the triumph of His resurrection on Eater Sunday. Most of all, it is a time to be thankful, for the unmerited favour we received through God's abundant grace in the process.
I've not done as much as I would have liked to really get into the season. My days have been full, really full, mostly in a good way. But I think it's never too late to spend some time reading the word of God and being thankful. For this purpose, I've found the BSF guide to teaching your child about Easter really helpful. Aside from some practical tips on how to get kids to share in this meaningful occasion, I've found the table at the end, which sets out passages and talking points for a bible study with your children really helpful for guiding our discussion.
Here are some other links that you might find useful as we meditate and celebrate this season:
