Jacob’s ladder

I made a simple board book to retell the story of Jacob’s dream to the children in church tomorrow. The reading is from Genesis 28:10-19.

    This is where I am going with my sermon. I will be putting up a tall step ladder as I begin to preach saying “It’s not about the ladder” then helping them see God is always, always, always with us. In the dirt and dark stuff of our lives, in the ordinary rocks. I too have a heart shaped stone like yours!
