advent reading day 2
scripture reading: the terrible lie, genesis 3, JSBB pgs 28-37*
symbol: a fruit tree, representing adam's and eve's choice not to trust God and to eat from the forbidden tree
Before they left the garden, God whispered a promise to Adam and Eve: "It will not always be so! I will come to rescue you! And when I do, I'm going to do battle against the snake. I'll get rid of the sin and the dark and the sadness you let in here. I'm coming back for you!
*we are using the jesus storybook bible by sally lloyd jones for our kid-friendly readings.
so how do we do our advent readings? well, we adjust it a bit each year as the boys get older, but we always do our reading following dinner. we all pile on the couch under a comfy blanket and soak in the words of the reading for that night. this year, burrito and noodle will take turns reading the story aloud and hopefully with a little assistance, salsa can hang the ornament on the tree.
we change things up a bit each year, but we use a tree like these on which we hang our ornaments.
