Jesus’ Family: finding a home in the family of the church.
Material for this week below
We’re already on Week Three of the term, and it’s the last of the three ‘foundation’ sessions onto which we’re placing the stories which will come until Christmas. In some respects, it’s a hard gig – there’s not a child coming on Sunday morning who doesn’t know the story of Jesus’ birth! However, there is often great value in exploring the Christmas story without the pressure of the Christmas season. Without the excitement of carol services and snow-laden crafts, it’s possible to focus on, and explore how significant a fact it is, that Jesus was born into a family like any other. It’s important for us all not to miss the wonderful fact that God created us in families, part of a network of relationships and love. We were created to join our Creator in the home of His family.
