Sunday Fun ....

Jorden had fun with the other kids this morning at Sunday School as they learned a little about being filled with God's Spirit, and played some games to reinforce today's Gospel lesson...John 6:63-69 "It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh is useless. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. But among you there are some who do not believe.’ For Jesus knew from the first who were the ones that did not believe, and who was the one that would betray him. And he said, ‘For this reason I have told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted by the Father.’  Because of this many of his disciples turned back and no longer went about with him. So Jesus asked the twelve, ‘Do you also wish to go away?’ Simon Peter answered him, ‘Lord, to whom can we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.’"

One game used balloons, which, without air blown into them, they are pretty lifeless, and don't do what they were intended to do by the creator.  Much like ourselves, we need to be filled with God's Spirit, to have the kind of life God wants for us, and for us to do the things God, the Creator, made us to do and to be.

We also played a bubble game outside to "catch the Spirit".
Jorden and Fr. Bill.

After Church Jorden went over to Fr. Bill and said, "Fr. Bill, my other Gramma has "clothes" like you have on too!" ..*L*   Her other gramma is an Episcopal priest too, so her vestments would be similar... funny the things kids notice huh?
