Discipleship

On Wednesday, my late spring speaking tour wrapped up with a presentation to middle schoolers and their families.

Knowing the age group of the audience, we went pretty hard core active for the first half of the presentation. An icebreakers that involved animals (which connected to later) a vote with your feet activity, a writing/ drawing activity, before attempting to do just a little content which lead into a video of Father Tony’s story of Creation (where the animals connected back in.

What Father Tony does not cover in Genesis 1:27- image and likeness stuff. We did and tied that into how we car called to look at things differently as disciples.

That lead to a fast drive through the upside-down thinking of the Beatitudes and a call to be church together, using my favorite metaphor of the Kia Hamsters.

It was a fast moving 90 minutes.  It had to be, I was facing a four-hour late-night ride home!
