Our Seven Last Words Devotional Guide can be used on its own, but it is meant to accompany our Seven Last Words Coloring Posters and Seven Last Words Coloring Pages. This Devotional Guide includes eight meaningful devotions and is meant to be used intergenerationally.
The devotional guide focuses on the key word we chose from each of the sayings of the Seven Last Words as illustrated in the coloring posters. The devotions focus on connecting the chosen word and Jesus’ life-giving words from the cross, to our daily lives today. The reflections and questions are designed for all ages to go through together but can be easily adapted for any mix of ages. This is different from in past years when we had adult and children versions separate. We wanted to create a truly intergenerational experience by providing reflections and questions suitable for all ages to reflect on together.
These are the words and passages discussed:
Note: The illustrations in the Devotional Guide are meant as a reference to what illustration the devotion goes with. They are not meant to be large enough to color. We encourage you to purchase our Seven Last Words Coloring Posters or the Seven Last Words Coloring Pages for that purpose.
