We began the lesson by discussing how Advent is a time of expectation. As Christians, the prophet’s expectation of the Messiah is foremost in our minds. We looked at Isaiah 35: 9-10 ‘Let the whole world be glad.’ The reading reminded us of the expectations we have of the Messiah’s coming and the effect this will have on us. We then read Isaiah 62: 11-12 ‘God is coming.’ In this reading, we were reminded of what God has done for us and the expectations that have been placed upon us as ‘God’s Holy People’. The children were given their main task for the lesson—in pairs or small groups, they designed a PowerPoint presentation using text and photographs which depicted and explored the prophet’s expectations within the readings.
