  1. Thank you John for all the wonderful ideas and how to present them!!
    Love the sting and circle idea for this Sunday.

  2. Thanks so much for you faithful thoughts each week… this week you really made me churckle out loud in my sermon prep, as you joked about ” yeh… let;s explain redemption and sanctification children!” But seriously, thank you for taking the time and trouble… some great ideas. Bless you

  3. Greetings! I was curious if you had a children’s message for this week’s gospel, Luke 24:36-48 or for the Acts text (Acts 3:12-19)? I love watching all your videos and I’m trying to get an idea for a children’s message for this week’s text.

    • Playing with the Gospel lesson, one idea I had was to get a couple easy to know objects, like a ball, a piece of string, and maybe a piece of paper. Have them hidden. One child is told to close their eyes, and they are asked to feel the object and guess what it is.

      Then you can play with the idea of the disciples being told by Jesus to look and see, to touch and feel that it is Jesus.

      Bringing it home, we could ask how do people see that we are followers of Jesus? How do people see Jesus in this place and in you and me? How we love, and care for each other and the world.

      That is one idea I had.

      ~ John
