For years now, I’ve had a morning tea and Bible time tradition with my children. It’s very basic. We’ve recently finished Genesis 1-12 which has helped us think and talk about God, humanity and the world. A lot of ethical questions came up, especially about the value of all human beings (there’s another post in that!). It is wonderful to be taking the kids through the narrative and to see their whole world view taking shape.
- I have been reading Colossians on my own and been amazed all over again.
- Colossians takes us back to Creation and tells us where Jesus fits in, so it is an essential sequel to Genesis.
- I want to think more deeply on a single book of the Bible. To talk about something simply, we need to understand that thing really well.
- I really want the children to see how excellent Jesus is and the way he changes people.
