Taking a Holy Pause with Kids this Advent
By Beth A. Lewis, President and CEO, Augsburg Fortress
I just read this post, Taking a Holy Pause with Kids this Advent, on our Sparkhouse Family blog. I know that many of you look for resources to point to in your eNewsletters, on your social media pages, etc. to help families connect church and daily life. I thought this one might be helpful, especially since it lifts up this beautiful time in the Church year, Advent. In the frenzy of our lives, the time between Thanksgiving & Christmas often gets lost instead of appreciated, especially by busy families with young children!
This brief blog post might be helpful in encouraging people to slow down and look to the light of Christ.
And, if you don’t know about Sparkhouse Family yet, it is our new (launched in August), publishing imprint creating books, Story Bibles, DVD’s & streaming videos for families with young children. These are not curricular, but are intended for use in the home (or mini-van or restaurant or…) They have been crafted for families who are actively engaged in church life and even more for those who aren’t!
