Calling all yâ€™all â€“ Believers + Skeptics, Kids + Adults, Makers + those of us who flunked art class (I put that last one in there for myself).
Easter is coming and we thought itâ€™d be fun to open up our home near the Pacific Science Center for breakfast and craft projects on Sunday mornings over the next few weeks.
We’ll start with breakfast, then read a story together, then spend some time re-interpreting the story through things like stop-motion video, comic strips, dioramas, felt boards, or anything else you can think of. We’ll have some basic art supplies available (colored pencils, crayons, glue sticks, etc), but plan to bring what you need for your project.

We love the Jesus Storybook Bible and recommend it to anyone wanting to understand what Jesus is all about. If you havenâ€™t read it, hereâ€™s one of our favorite passages…
Now, some people think the Bible is a book of rules, telling you what you should and shouldnâ€™t do. The Bible certainly does have some rules in it. They show you how life works best. But the Bible isnâ€™t mainly about you and what you should be doing. Itâ€™s about God and what he has done.
Other people think the Bible is a book of heroes, showing you people you should copy. The Bible does have some heroes in it, but (as youâ€™ll soon find out) most of the people in the Bible arenâ€™t heroes at all. They make some big mistakes (sometimes on purpose). They get afraid and run away. At times they are downright mean.
No, the Bible isnâ€™t a book of rules, or a book of heroes. The Bible is most of all a Story. Itâ€™s an adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure. Itâ€™s a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne — everything — to rescue the one he loves. Itâ€™s like the most wonderful of fairy tales that has come true in real life!
You see, the best thing about this Story is — itâ€™s true.
There are lots of stories in the Bible, but all the stories are telling one Big Story. The Story of how God loves his children and comes to rescue them.
