Advent 2011: Day 4

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

DAY 4: The Everlasting Father (Isaiah 9:6) 

Discuss: The name and it's meaning. How it applies to Christ. 

Activity: Brainstorm "everlasting." What was before the world? What is eternity." 

Bible: Romans 6:23. What is the significance of this verse? How does it relate to the name of Jesus. 

Art: Make and evergreen wreath. The wreath is "eternal." It is circular having no beginning and no end. Evergreens symbolize eternal life. Hang a wreath in your home for Christmas. 

Applied Math: Depending on age of child, discuss circles. Learn radius, diameter, pi, etc. Expand into fractions by dividing the circle into sections. Use the circle for a clock face to introduce telling time. Discuss infinity.
