Story of the pretzel as it relates to Easter and prayer, cool for the kids (and grown ups too). The Lenten Pretzel.


To observe Lent, set up a Lenten tree. Hang Bible verses on the tree, 1 for each day from Ash Wednesday to Good Friday. Each day take a verse & read it. Then pray the verse, read its context, or talk about it. As Easter approaches, the tree will grow more bare & will be empty on Holy Saturday as we remember Christ in the tomb. Easter morning, fill the tree w/ egg ornaments/flowers. [I add read the Resurrection story & sing a Resurrection song w/ the family like Christ the Lord is Risen Today!]
