Sunday: Fourth Sunday after Pentecost
Revised Common Lectionary – Year C
Really messed up this week, and kept switching back and forth Gospel lessons for one week, then second lessons for another. Ugh. Sorry, my friends!
So for this week, I will be using a post from 2013, that uses a few items. However, the one main item, Dollar Tree doesn’t carry right now. So underneath the first link, is a second one that explains how to make a magic bag that you can use in place of the Magic Gimmick.
First the Post:
Second, the video (which was done on the fly. If you have questions on how to make it, let me know, and I can try to answer them!):
Text: 2nd Corinthians 4:16 – 5:10
Dollar Store Item: Plain gift boxes
The Take Away: We trust that God loves us!

Oh, my Gosh! I *totally* borrowed your idea to address our recent high school graduates! The youth came forward for “Kids Time” and I asked them to help me come up with things they thought would help the graduates be successful. I wrote them down on a slip of paper that I slid into the “pocket,” and then crumbled up the bags, after admonishing the kids that what they put into their futures they could expect out of their futures. Uncrumbled the bag, and showed it to the congregation, telling the grads that unless they invested themselves into (their family, their church family, their God-given talents, their community, their friends, their skills, -the path that God had set before them!!!!-), they could expect (and I opened up the bag, with the slip of paper folded in the “false side,” completely unseen, *THAT* would be the future they could expect for themselves. The little kids loved that they got to help the grads learn a lesson, and I think even the grads took it -at least a little! *grin* You never know with teenagers!!- to heart… At the very least, they seemed to appreciate that they were being put on the spot! 🙂 Thanks so much for the sounding board!! ~Chris
