advent reading day 8
scripture reading: the forgiving prince: joseph and his brothers, from genesis 37-46*
symbol: joseph's beautiful multi-colored coat
*we are using the jesus storybook bible by sally lloyd jones for our kid-friendly readings.
i think this is my favorite ornament. the boys took to the making of this ornament with reckless abandon and it shows!
i am a huge fan of sally lloyd-jones, the author of the JSBB. that sweet bible is now being sold along with a set of 3 cds narrating the stories. and on her blog, she is posting some of these stories for all to enjoy. we love, love, LOVE it! we watched the corresponding story to yesterday's reading last night, and it was a big hit with the boys.
and she also has the story of jesus' birth posted to youtube right now. you can view that one here.
