Copy the picture above and hand out to all kids with crayons at the beginning of both the Ash Wednesday service and Lent 1 service. Have them bring up their pictures at Kid's Time, talk though the idea, and have them put their pictures into the box. Then, do this litany at the end of Kid's Time, saving one picture to put in the box during the litany.
A Litany for Ash Wednesday/ Lent 1
C: Christ has died.
C: Christ is Risen.
C: Christ will come again.
P: Alleluia! Sometimes we must say goodbye for a time.
P: It can help us focus on what needs to be done.
P: We will know the alleluia is there waiting for us.
P: We will sing it with a new understanding on Easter morning.
C: Goodbye, Alleluia.
P: Goodbye, we’ll see you again.
(Alleluia banner or picture is placed in the box while silence is kept.)
P: As Christians, we live in a time of the now and the not yet. We know that Christ is not really gone, and at the same time, look forward to celebrating the new life and resurrection on Easter. Putting away our most vibrant word of praise gives us a chance to slow down and take time to grow, and to have a new appreciation for what it means to us to praise with this word on Easter day.
