All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
21 all-new ornament patterns. Why do we celebrate Christmas? Beaded ornaments tell the story in Elaine Clanton Harpine's newest collection of Christments. The designs focus on the symbolic meaning of each aspect of the Christmas story. Over half of the Christments in this volume are easy enough for first- through third-graders to make. The reason for Christmas is reinforced on a kinesthetic level, through the manipulation of chenille stems and stringing beads. The patterns are arranged from the simplest to the most challenging, with supply lists and easy-to-understand instructions included. Some of the ornaments include the dove of peace, magi from the East, Mary's donkey, a miniature church and a beautiful Saint Lucia tree topper. Includes a story for the hanging of the Christments in a church service.Don't forget to pick up Volume 1 and Volume 2, if you don't already have them.Other Advent resources great for the family:Come to ChristmasAdvent Worship & Advent for FamiliesSpecial Days and Seasons of the Christian YearThe Advent Jesse TreeLet’s Make a Jesse Tree
