Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Tell about the Savior

Leap frogOur Kids in the Kingdom Week continued Thursday with the Christmas story as shepherds came to visit the baby Jesus on the night of his birth. As they tended their sheep, the shepherds saw a sky filled with angels who told them that the Messiah—the one anointed by God to be their savior—had been born in Bethlehem. The shepherds were told that the baby they found wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger (which means food trough) was the one. They went at once and found and worshipped Jesus. Then the shepherds excitedly went out to tell the news that the Savior had been born.

Today's handout is online at Bethlehem Star: Thursday.

    What a wonderful way for the children to come together to learn about the birth of Jesus. It looks like fun for all.
