This resource for children's work offers material on the major festivals of the Christian year, some well known saints days and a selection of the qnew namesq in the three-year lectionary. Each chapter includes: an introductory illustration relating to the person or festival; a biblical, historical and/or bibliographical introduction to the saint or festival; a summary of the main themes of the story or festival to be explored in the activity ideas; craft, music, games or cookery ideas; suggestions for how the material can be incorporated into Church worship or a school assembly.The Acts of the Apostles tells us that it was on this day that the Holy Spirit came upon the twelve disciples with wind and fire ... Whit Sunday simply meant a#39;White Sundaya#39; because many baptisms were performed - appropriately linking the gift of the Spirit to the whole Church ... Each of the craft activities can take one session.
