This Sunday I think I witnessed one of the best kids talks I've seen in a long time.
Cynthia was trying to explain the idea of connectedness within Gods family to the kids (We were looking at Romans 12: 3-16, but many passages explore the same concept).
Cynthia gave all the kids a ball of wool, they gave her the end, then she asked them to go find someone who teaches them about God. The kids got that person to hang onto the wool, while the kids kept hanging onto the ball. Cynthia then asked the kids to find someone who serves them morning tea and the kids got that person to hold onto the wool. The kids kept going, connecting us all up - people who pray for us, people who welcome us in the morning, people who we play with, people who read the Bible to us.
By the end our church looked like this;
As someone said 'The church has never looked better"
We were all there, together, connected. It made me so happy to see it like that.
