Where’s Jesus?

Written on Sunday, 23rd April

What’s holy, all around us but you can’t see it ?  Yep – that’s it – Jesus!
That was the theme of Sunday Club today.
Jesus said to Thomas “Because you have seen Me, you have believed.  Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”  That’s us !
What better way to demonstrate this and run around, but to play hide and seek.  Each of our Sunday Club took turns to hide and get found.  A great way to show that even though you’re there you can’t be seen.  Just like Jesus – there but cannot be seen.
Once back inside, we talked about how Jesus appeared many times to the astonishment of the disciples.  We drew and wrote in candle wax on white paper.  Everything was invisible until we painted over the paper in bright colours.  Our drawing came through and we could see them.
We just then had time to look at the appearing Jesus in another way by making paper fortune tellers with one of the flaps hidden with three words “You’ve Found Jesus”.

Before we returned to the Church service, we learnt an action prayer that helped describe what we learnt today. After communion, we acted it out to the congregation:-
Who cares if I can’t see You?
(shrug shoulders with hands open)
I know that You’re here!
(nod)
Who cares if I can’t touch You?
(shrug shoulders with hands open)
I know that You’re here!
(nod)
You love me
(hands on heart)
You listen to me
(touch ears)
You see me
(point to eyes)
and You talk to me
(point to mouth)
So who cares if I can’t see You?
(shrug shoulders with hands open)
I know that You’re here!
(nod)
Shrug
Our plans for the activities today were inspired from John 20:19-31 and Peter 1 3:9

“though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, or you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls”
