Our celebrations in church kicked off with a game of sleeping lions - never have I experienced such silence at a Messy Church before! Awesome work, Yvonne! The children gathered at the front to hear the story and everyone wanted to play the part of Daniel, or to be one of the hungry lions. Daniel and the lions having been chosen, there was a lot of roaring from the rest of the children as we all joined in with the story around our lion's 'den', courtesy of the rather brilliant Enid.
Teatime, and we munched our way as usual through loads of pizzas, sandwiches and cakes. Our 'keep the conversation going' table signs asked the children some questions about their afternoon and what they'd learned from the story, reminding them that just as Daniel did the right thing and carried on praying to God, even when the law told him to pray to someone else, we too should 'keep the conversation going' and pray to God. He loves to hear our voices. I'd love to hear yours too...any ideas we can share to enhance our Messy lives for God!
See you next Month when we'll be going on a Messy Christmas Journey (can't wait!), Jo xx
