Parents - Peace School this week gives an introduction to our Bible. After Godly Play in the K-2nd class, we now see how all those stories are connected. Is there an order to the Bible? What came before Jesus, and what came after Jesus? Instead of memorizing the books of the Bible, we are working on "memorizing" the story of the Bible deep in our hearts. All the stories are connected, just like the stories of generations in our family, and more similar to a relational journey with God than a moral "to-do" list.
God invites us into this story - the story that Jesus lived into, and the story that the Spirit of God is continuing with all of us today.
Here's an article by Anita if you'd like more detail.
