The season of Lent in the church year is perhaps one of the most important and significant to God’s people. Just as Advent is a time for preparing our lives for the coming of Christ at Christmas, so Lent can help us prepare for celebrating the joyful message of the resurrection at Easter, and for welcoming the coming of the Holy Spirit as it came to the apostles on the Day of Pentecost.
This book is intended primarily for use by families, but anyone will benefit from using it, especially those who work with children. It contains information about the history and traditions of the seasons of Lent, Easter, and Pentecost, as well as symbols and their meanings, the stories of the seasons, and activities for the days of Lent and the weeks between Easter and the Day of Pentecost.
Read through the entire book to help you decide how you will use it. For instance, if you have small children you may want to review a story several times, extending the activity that goes with it for more than one day. Or you may want to switch activities from one day to another, depending on your families schedule or the type of activity. There are enough ideas here to last for several seasons.
However you use this book, it is hoped that it will bring deeper meaning to your family’s observances of the days before and after Easter!About the Author:
