Remembering William Tyndale

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!

Opening Prayer

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.


James 1:21-25
John 12:44-50
Psalm 1 or
Psalm 15

Spend time teaching about Tyndale's life as the children fill in the coloring pages:

Perhaps for next year: 2 DVDs on his life: One from Gateway Films or a cartoon version, preview here

Unit Study free with $13 purchase: from Soli Deo Gloria Resources

For older children and adults: John Piper's Sermon on Tyndale: read or listen

And John Piper's Book Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ The Cost of Bringing the Gospel to the Nations in the Lives of William Tyndale, Adoniram Judson, and John Paton

Hymn Study: We'll then continue practicing the Sanctus, scroll down until you see the S129 by Powell!
