December 10
{15 Days Until Christmas}

Read Together

And Joseph went from the town of Nazareth to the town of Bethlehem in Judea, the birthplace of King David. Joseph went there because he was a descendant of David. He went to be counted, with Mary. Luke 2:4-5

Discuss Together

Can you imagine walking 70 miles? That’s how far Mary and Joseph traveled from Nazareth. That’s like walking from Champion Forest Baptist Church to Galveston. How long do you think it would take? Joseph and Mary probably traveled in a caravan. They may have walked, or Mary may have ridden a donkey. (Remember, she was going to have a baby!) They probably traveled between 4 and 7 days.

Do Together

  • How far can your family walk? Take a Christmas light walk around your neighborhood. Track the distance on a device. Notice the lights. Sing Christmas songs as you walk.
  • Have your own “silent night”! Turn off all technology. Read Christmas books and enjoy hot chocolate. (Try purchasing a new children’s Christmas book every year and start a Christmas collection.)

Pray Together

We pray we will know that you, God, are with us wherever we go. Joshua 1:9b
