Tales of Salvation

Season 11

Let’s talk about the stories we know and love! Cindy and the kids explore our favorite fairy tales and childhood stories that reveal themes of good and evil, death and salvation, in a way that even a small child can understand. In preparation for Easter, we will relate our favorite stories to the greatest story ever told: salvation through Jesus Christ!

Snow White and Ashes

Cindy and the kids retell the story of Snow White: a story of sin, death, and resurrection. Entering into Lent, we talk about the significance of Ash Wednesday and the promises in our baptism, telling our story of sin, death, and resurrection for us! (Genesis 3:1-6, 1 Corinthians 15:20, 23)

Fairy Tales

Season 3

Explore the Fairy Tales we know and love with a twist of theology! Read them, watch them, talk about them and find an engaging conversation that your children are happy to participate in. This is a six-part series involving select FAIRY TALES. We were inspired by an essay by J.R.R. Tolkien called “On Fairy Stories”. In this he muses on the timeless quality and benefit of the fairy story, entering into a magical universe where our usual rational defenses may be down. Ultimately, these fun stories stir up simple truths about ourselves, our God, and the greatest story we know in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
