Well it is VBS week, and I am a "Bible Blast" leader. It is the rotation where the kids hear the bible story. This year the theme is a science "Power Lab," but we are telling bible stories & trying to let the kids "experience" them. Yesterday, the kids broke out in dot stickers, and were quarantined--like the lepers. Only one leper came back to thank Jesus, thus the point of the day--Jesus gives us the power to be thankful.
Today was the story of Jesus healing the blind man. Jesus put mud over the blind mans eyes. Well, in our bible blast experience the kids were blindfolded in a dark room---we used oatmeal instead of mud, and put it on their forehead. I was kind of dreading the lesson--thinking the kids were going to freak out, but it really went well. The point of the lesson being that Jesus gives us the power to help others.
I made about twelve cooked cups of oatmeal, and only used about 1 :oP
Tomorrow we're WALKING ON WATER :O)
