I hope our Gather & Grow Family Lent Devotional has allowed you to engage with your children in conversations of faith and experience a tiny bit of their spiritual transformation this past month. If it hasn’t gone as well as you would have liked or you still think your child is too young, remember, you are planting seeds that will grow into faith. You are guiding your children along a journey – however long and however seemingly pointless at this stage – that is foundational in their lives.
I grew up in the Charismatic evangelical church, and we didn’t practice many church traditions. When I was in high school I had a friend who was Episcopalian. He invited me to his home to share a Seder dinner with his family. I was incredibly moved – even at the age of 16 – by the history and tradition that was represented in the meal. Since, my parents have participated themselves in the tradition with their Jewish friends. We never knew the depth of meaning we were missing out on and have thoroughly enjoyed the times we’ve engaged in a Passover meal with friends and loved ones.
Join me for the rest of this post (including a family Passover Meal menu + talking points) over on our new site that’s all about family faith – gatherandgrow.co
Praying your family experiences the fullness of Christ this Easter season!
