For Christmas, we’ve created a special edition of our Brain and Soul Boosting resource. As our gift to you, we’re offering this as a free download.
Louise says, “Christmas Brain and Soul Boosting (BSB) is an activity that exercises our brains, warms our hearts and brings us into the Spirit of Christmas. Questions prompt thoughts and discussions about Christmas, and there are activities that everyone will enjoy. Although BSB was developed for older people, younger people are enjoying it too, which makes it ideal for Christmas and family get-togethers. It can even be done over Zoom at Christmas time!"
This version follows the arc of the Christmas story, from the Old Testament to the New. It is brought out in three separate sessions, each drawing out a different aspect of Christmas and what it means in our lives. The first session looks at how Jesus’ birth was planned and prophesied, the second the angel’s announcement to Mary and the journey to Bethlehem, and the third the birth of Jesus that we celebrate on Christmas Day.
Each session is in five parts:
• A short Scripture reading
• Exploring what this day means to us, with points for discussion
• An aspect of the biblical story of Christmas
• A small activity to do together
• Reflections and a closing prayer
