Faith and fishing

The other week we continued the theme of faith. 

Dave had three chairs to lie on, and said that the centre one represented our faith in God.
If you take God away as our support, we would not be very stable and could fall anytime.

Dave tested the children’s faith in him. They all said that they knew Dave and trusted all that he did and that he wouldn’t do anything to hurt them. Dave and the children made a deal, if a bucket of water was placed on Dave's chest, and he fell, he would get wet.

However if it stayed, they would all get wet.

Dave drank water from the bucket and flicked some at them to “sample’ what could happen to them.

The bucket balanced and all was well, but Dave got a cramp in his little toe and sat up quickly, tippling the bucket toward them. They all screamed and ducked for cover, but the water was in fact only shredded paper!

Lots of fun, but a good lesson in having faith in what trusted people in their lives say and do.

We discussed the disciples' faith in Jesus when he told them to cast their nets on the other side of the boat.

And of course, we had to make fish!
