We’ve been talking about ideas for our families at their kitchen tables this week. And I’m pretty sure that part of this next idea is something you might already do with your family. Dye Easter eggs. But what I want to get us thinking about is how we could do this and bring in some neighborhood kids or unchurched school friends to do it with us because what better time of year to start a conversation about the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ than Easter!
I’m sure you’ve heard of Resurrection Eggs right? You can get them here or here or here. I love these eggs and have found them to be an incredible evangelistic tool not only for me but for my kids as well. Let your kids listen to you tell the story and then give them the chance to tell part of the story or the entire story. It’s why we’re here on this earth – to spread the Good News! And it can happen at our Kitchen Tables after school one day or on a Saturday. Doesn’t even have to be Easter weekend. So maybe this year consider dying Easter eggs at your kitchen table and then telling the story of Easter with Resurrection eggs. I’ve been amazed at the last few years how God has brought people into our path to share these eggs with. I’m not sure what this will look like for us this year but I’m praying and anticipating the opportunity to share Jesus with some neighboring kids.
