Welcoming the Christ Child Book + Ornaments

from 20.00

Journey through the Old Testament with 40 wonderfully illustrated Bible readings, one for each day of the Nativity Lent. These short, beloved stories from Scripture include questions and answers to encourage family discussion, and can be used any of time of year, to assist parents in their efforts to bring the Holy Orthodox Faith to life in their homes, increasing understanding and inspiring love for Christ and His Church. Old Testament events and prophecies—many of which are shown to point the way to the birth of the Christ Child—together with New Testament events leading up to and including Christ’s Nativity, all serve to help Orthodox families enter more deeply into the spirit of the Nativity Fast, and to celebrate the feast of Christmas with greater understanding and inspiration. 

Mark progress in your family’s journey with beautiful, colorful ornaments matching the book’s illustrations! As you read each story, you’ll hang the matching ornament (on an Advent calendar, a tree, or a simple ribbon running across the room! Make it as simple or as creative as you like. This is your family’s Orthodox Jesse Tree .) You can countdown to Christmas with these beautiful, durable ornaments (they’re plastic, so that the toddlers can love them as much as they like!) and the children can retell the stories as they look over the illustrations again and again, as the excitement of celebrating Christ’s birth builds. 

This set of 40 2.5” round ornaments comes packaged in an attractive gift box, with 40 pre-cut ribbons for hanging.

***Please note that the Welcoming the Christ Child book and ornaments are on backorder, and will ship no later than Nov 4, in plenty of time for the beginning of the Nativity Fast.***
