For tonight's family activity, grab your crayons, markers, or colored pencils and enjoy a few minutes of creative activity. Coloring is fun for all ages!
Tonight's family activity involves two things: Jesus and your kitchen table.
Find an image of Jesus, or perhaps the Christ Child from a nativity, and place Him on your kitchen table. You can add flowers, drawings, holy cards, or a candle and place them all on top of a piece of fabric or anything else that would make your family table something special and beautiful.
Invite your family to offer a special prayer of thanksgiving that we can share in the feast of Christ.
Tonight's family activity comes from Bishop Spalding.
In light of recent events, Bishop Spalding is asking the faithful to place yellow ribbons outside their homes to show Nashville that we are praying for them. If you have a yellow ribbon, please take a few moments to head outside with your family, tie the ribbon on your tree, and say a prayer as a family for Music City.
Don't have yellow ribbon? A yellow shoelace, yellow plastic bag cut into strips, or yellow string will be a great replacement. You can also color a yellow heart on a piece of paper and post it to a front window.
Join us in praying for all those in our great city fighting battling this virus!
Tonight's family activity centers around forgiveness. Good Friday is a perfect time to talk about forgiveness as we spend the day in awe at what Jesus Christ has done for us.
As you gather your family, ask them to share a time they have been forgiven. In turn, ask who they can forgive. Sharing around your family's table, offering forgiveness is a great way to worship this Good Friday.
