How do you prepare for Easter?
Do you and your loved ones joyfully anticipate the most important Christian holiday?
I created the Easter Tree to help my family, and yours, anticipate Easter. The pinnacle of the Christian calendar is the celebration of new life through Jesus’ resurrection. This story of good news is best told if we start at the beginning. Using ornaments and Bible passages, The Easter Tree creatively engages the Bible from Genesis through the life of Jesus Christ and beyond. I began this project with my family many years ago, because I want my children to gain affection for the Bible and the true story it tells. Now I hope to share this project with you.
Join me this Easter season as we ponder God’s sovereign and redemptive story, from its beginning through its climax in the death and resurrection of our savior Jesus Christ. For the next 50 days, we will visit the grand stories of the Bible and see how they fit together. If you didn’t start at the beginning, it’s not too late to join in! The journey can begin anytime.
I hope the Scriptures will come alive for you this season, reminding you of the covenant promises of God, and pointing you to their ultimate fulfillment in Jesus. The Easter Tree journey travels through favorite passages, and also explores lesser known aspects of the redemption story. Won’t you join me on this life-changing adventure?
Beginning on Ash Wednesday, February 18th, we will post a daily video devotional linked to that day’s Scripture passage. The calendar on the right links to the corresponding video. Each day’s video is also available under the “Videos” tab on the menu above.
