Ark & the Tent
I wonder why it takes so many layers of roof to protect the tent?
As the Israelites flee, they continually rebuild their tent with the ark at every new camp. Each element of the tent has a sacred meaning and placement. This story from Exodus 25-31, 35-40 allows the children to understand the history. This story is found in Godly Play and Young Children and Worship has a similar story entitled, "The arc and a tent for God."
