because we have a place for you in treehouse :).
seen here, julie alexander – who works as a reading teacher in portland – spends her weekends acting in the treehouse for @lhkidz.
you see, this week, the star is very confused. we are learning a verse that says “then Jesus said to them again, i am the light of the world, and anyone who follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
we started advent. the first candle is “PROPHECY”, so we looked at different prophecies that were written 700+ years before Jesus birth, that were proven true when he was born. AWESOME. God doesnt have to do this… but yet he still gives us proof that we can hang onto.
anyway… our star will be a recurring character that will keep trying to do things that make him more God-like… when really he just needs to learn to let God love him… this week he was trying to be the light of the world instead of walk with Jesus, the light of the world.
we are so often like that, we think we need to work so hard, to hear God’s love. here’s the thing – nothing you can do will make him love you more, or less. embrace it. like our pastor said today – rest in it. God loves you. Just how you are.
if any of you want to participate in the fun we have in treehouse – finding new ways to reveal the eternal story of Jesus to the Long Hollow Kidz.
