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. So far we have added a Palm Leaf saying Hosanna Save Us & Hosanna Praise God; A Drawing of a Coin; and a basin and foot from either clay/playdoh or paper; a bag of tinfoil or similar coins & a set of praying hands; and a piece of string/rope . It might be useful today to review all of the stories in our box and if kept, the journal Christine suggested in our first edition of Lighthouse for All found here.
Today we are looking at the Crucifixion. The text for today is found in Matthew26:47-75 & 27:11-31; Mark 14:43-15:20; Luke 22:47-23:24; John 18:1-19:16. Don’t have a Bible at home? 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.
It is also helpful to note that throughout this week Fishy Music will be posting special song, activity and reflection for Holy Week each day, including 2 new songs. Prayer Spaces in Schools and 24-7 Prayer will be sharing at home prayer space activities. Scripture Union Scotland is also hosting a new endeavour, SU TV for those in P5 and up to enjoy a bit of camp without being at camp! Lots of ways for us to learn about Jesus this week!
