The Christian Pumpkin
This Saturday is a day that kids look forward to all year long, Halloween! The fun of planning what you want to dress up as, getting your costume ready, buying candy to hand out, carving pumpkins, and of course trick or treating! Halloween is not a holiday that is celebrated in the church, however, I did find a cute and fun way to tie it into telling the story of Jesus.
If you have not carved your pumpkin yet, this story of “The Christian Pumpkin” below is a great and fun way to teach kids about Jesus while having some Halloween fun!
A Christian Pumpkin - Author unknown
I'm a Jack O'Lantern
My light will shine so bright
For I am a Christian pumkin
My symbols tell what's right
My nose is like the cross on which my Savior died
To set us free from sin We need no longer hide
My mouth is like a fish The whole wide world to show
That Christians live in this house And love their Savior so!
The story starts at Christmas My eyes are like the star
That shown on Baby Jesus And wise men saw from far
My color it is orange Just like the big bright sun
That rose on Easter day Along with Gods' own Son.
And so on Halloween Let's set our pumpkins out
And tell the trick or treaters What Gods' love is all about!
I pray that each of you will have a safe and joy filled Halloween!
Have a blessed week, Intern Pastor Katie Kringstad
