Don't Pack Up Easter Yet?

It’s tempting to say Easter’s over and it’s time to move on.  When it comes to a narrative or a story, you have to get the end to understand all the parts and how they fit together.  It’s no different with the story of the First Easter.  If we stop talking about the Easter story just because Resurrection Day has passed there are missing pieces. The encouragement I want to offer is continue teaching your children what happened after Jesus rose from the dead.  What should be included?  Here are a few ideas

Events from His days after  the resurrection until and including His ascension.  Here are a few Arch books on the various events.

What a wonderful time it is to share the story of the first Easter and the beginning of the Church.  This connects the importance of all these events and how they worked together as God unveiled his overarching plan for believers.
