    How to read the Bible with your children


    Knowing where to start with the Bible is a challenging question whether you're an adult or a kid. Some parents say start at the beginning, which immediately gets off to a good start in the creation narrative, but it can be challenging and you may quickly get into territory that you begin to struggle with. Other people say to start at the centre  with Jesus Christ, and work out from there; but I think we have to read the whole Bible in the light of Jesus. It's difficult to know what to choose.

    Forming faith rituals: Multimedia Bible exploration


    What springs to mind when you hear the word ‘multimedia’? Do you think of a video projector? Smoke and lights? Complex editing suites or mixing desks? In the art world, multimedia means the artist using more than one form of content in their work, for example clay in a painting or music with a sculpture. Wikipedia puts it this way: “Multimedia is content that uses a combination of different content forms such as text, audio, images, animations, video and interactive content.”

    Forming faith rituals: Playmo-Bible time


    One of the things I love to do is use toys to explore a Bible story. It’s a great way to bring faith activities into your children’s world, and it enables them to use the language of play in their faith. This is especially helpful for under-5s, who may not yet be able to express themselves through speech or writing. But it’s good for all of us, adults and children, to use play to explore our faith, as it gives us the freedom to respond to God in ways we might not attempt with words.
