This week I have been at Holiday Club (which we call Mayhem) every day. One of the catchphrases of the teens leading the up-front bit is “that reminds me of a story in the Bible!” which of course leads to someone stepping out of a time machine and explaining a story Jesus told. (Naturally.) In the afternoon I’ve been leading a Bible Study for the Mayhem team, talking about parables, and I think perhaps my own most common phrase has been “things happened….”
What phrases are inspiring you this week? What angle will you take? What hook is grabbing your attention?
All the snacks I have to share are from Mayhem…crisps to tuck into your sandwiches, fruit and cheese, and of course marshmallows for s’mores (what we’ll be doing Sunday night!). Pull up a chair and join us at the campfire, as we tell the old old story once again…
Teri Peterson is a minister in the Church of Scotland, in a congregation where the Holiday Club just finished an hour ago, after five days of mornings for kids, afternoons for adults, and evenings for teens. She spends her free time (of which this week had none) reading, petting the kitties, and amassing an ever larger collection of rain gear. And, of course, taking pictures of the view from her manse window!
