The Letter F Is for Fire

FAITH FOCUS:  God the Father and the Burning Bush

 

COPYWORK PASSAGE:

 

"And the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he saw that the bush was on fire and was not burnt."  -Exodus 3:2

 

POSSIBLE COMPLEMENTARY THEMES:

  • Who is God the Father?
  • Introduce God the Father as the First Person of the Blessed Trinity.
  • Give an account of the interaction between Moses and God on Mt. Horeb.
  • Discuss the elements of fire.
