Read these verses with your family:
on the tenth day of the seventh month, which is also the Great Day of Forgiveness, trumpets are to be blown everywhere in the land. This fiftieth year is sacred--it is a time of freedom and of celebration when everyone will receive back their original property, and slaves will return home to their families.
Ask your parents what these verses mean. How do they make you feel? What do they tell us about God? What do you think about slavery? Talk with your family about how Jesus might want us to celebrate Christmas because of these verses.
Then say this prayer:
And then color this color sheet. What do you wish this Christmas for slaves? What do you imagine going home would be like for them?
