The Burning Bush

Burning Bush

Prince of Egypt for 40 years but having to flee after killing a man who was beating a fellow-Hebrew, Moses has been in Midian for 40 years , shepherding  for his father-in-law. He led the flock to the vicinity of Sinai, the mountain of God , where the  LORD appeared to  him in a flame of fire out of the midst of the bush  “…and he looked , and behold, the bush burned with fire yet was not consumed.”  God was getting ready to call Moses to be the mighty deliverer His  enslaved people had been praying for.  Read about it in Exodus 2.  Tissue paper makes really good flames…so you need yellows, oranges, and red flame-shaped pieces, pre-cut, and ready to glue with slightly diluted white glue and paintbrushes. Q-tips could work in a pinch.  Have the kids color the page before gluing the flames.
