May I present, not one. But two comparisons between Jesus, and Santa Claus.
The first is this little video…
The second is this very serious Bible study*. Which looks at a number of comparisons… for example, I never knew that God said “…Ho, Ho…”
On that note, does anyone know the Bible Verse about Jesus wearing crimson red? I remember coming up with a biblically based reason why Santa was red**… but I kinda need that Bible verse to be able to talk about it…
*One or two verses may be a little out of context.
Welcome to the school holidays! If you don’t have kids, this probably means an easier journey to work, if you do this probably means you, or someone else needs to come up with ways to stop the little darlings from watching nothing but Cbeebies all day long.
But what can be done to entertain young Christian families throughout the holidays? Well Sofa is here to help*.
Here is our list of ways to keep Christian families entertained during the school holidays…
Compile a list of all the local holiday clubs. GET TO ALL OF THEM.
Learn a Bible verse a day.
Colour in pencil drawings of crosses.
Picnics! AKA portable communions…
Go on a family pilgrimage. (Possibly to the local cheap family friendly pub)
Take all your toilet rolls and try recreating the Tower of Babel.
Encourage the smalls ones to make a joyful noise! Joyful… may mean screaming…
Build a castle out of left over Bible study notes.
Is it raining outside? Time to encourage baptisms in the puddles.
When all else fails… 80s Christians movies on Youtube? (On second thoughts dont do that. Some of them are quite scary!)
