Hi Everyone, welcome to Lighthouse for All for Holy Week. We will be posting one video each day as we tell the story of the last week of Jesus’s life on Earth. Sunday posts will appear at 2pm, but Monday to Saturday’s posts will appear at 10am. We started with a task last Friday of making ourselves a Holy Week Box and learned about Jesus entering Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover on Sunday.
Today we are learning about Jesus’s Experience in the temple courtyard with the money changers during the Passover week. This can be found in all four Gospels: Matthew 21:12-17, Mark 11:15-17, Like 19:45-48, and John 12:14-17. All of these texts can be read in many different translations on biblegateway.com. The International Children’s Bible is a simple adaptation of the NIV and what we have in Lighthouse.
In addition to making your coin, Christine suggests that we spend some time in prayer this week, just as Jesus wanted the temple court to be a place of prayer, our homes can be places of prayer too. Christine gives simple instructions for one way we can make a prayer tree, we hope it helps you to be creative in making your own!
Throughout this week Fishy Music will be posting special song, activity and reflection for Holy Week, including 2 new ones. Prayer Spaces in Schools and 24-7 Prayer will be sharing at home prayer space activities.
