I posted some of my ideas for celebrating the life of William Tyndale, but here are a few more!I was planning on making this recipe from 1500s England (the recipe is all over the web so I'm not sure of its accuracy or original source?!), but we've had a long day of schooling and an even longer doctor visit for C's 1 year check up and flu shots for all. So we stopped at my favorite Italian bakery for some fun treats!
Lord, give to your people grace to hear and keep your word
that, after the example of your servant William Tyndale,
we may not only profess your gospel
but also be ready to suffer and die for it,
to the honour of your name;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Almighty God, you planted in the heart of your servant William Tyndale a consuming passion to bring the Scriptures to people in their native tongue, and endowed him with the gift of powerful and graceful expression and with strength to persevere against all obstacles: Reveal to us your saving Word, as we read and study the Scriptures, and hear them calling us to repentance and life; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Spend time teaching about Tyndale's life as the children fill in the coloring pages:
For older children and adults: John Piper's Sermon on Tyndale: read or listen
