And so we’ve come to the end of our Jesus Tree readings and symbols. Actually, we should have been done yesterday, but I wasn’t ready to stop, and Easter Monday seemed worthy of a reading, so I added the story of Jesus appearing to His disciples in the locked room, and then later to “Doubting Thomas,” found in John 20:19-29.
This has been a great addition to our Lenten observances. I encourage you to find something similar next year, whether it’s purchased from a kit, or made on your own. It’s a great opportunity to spend time together as a family, learning more about the life of Jesus, and what He came to do!
