Read Isaiah 40:1
Talk about comfort with your family. Ask your children what they think comfort is? What is it not? [FYI comfort in scripture paints the picture of love in action, and literally being ‘propped up.’ Think of a person so broken, wounded, or in pain that someone strong puts their arm around them and helps them move forward] Ask, “When was a time you felt God comforting you?” Be ready to share an example.
Read Isaiah 40:11
Lead a discussion about sheep and shepherds. How is God like a shepherd? How are we like sheep? How was Jesus the Good Shepherd? Then you can connect the dots to our Advent theme of love for week 2.
