My boy found this icicle on a walk in the Brecon Beacons… turned it upside down and stuck it in the ground… a finger pointing the way.
Prayer mobiles.… based on the I am film idea.
A visual reminder of who or what you are praying for and vehicle to invite prayer to be brought to. For a church or group or in a home as a prayer focus point. More cards can be slotted onto the line as life goes on.
They could also be single cards with a hook on as Christmas prayer decorations to hang on the tree
Anybody want one?!
… I invited a friend to put his feet and hand on the scroll and try to reach the future… as he moved forward (and left ‘the present’ behind) he discovered the phrases ‘hello’, ‘let go’, ‘well done’ and ‘I love you’. he eventually found a blank frame to either draw a picture of what he wanted in the future, or as a place to stand symbolically. He drew a target.
How quick is Gods forgiveness? On the turning of the tide? in the breaking of the next wave? In the moment following our confession?
My boy made this in the service on Sunday out of palm crosses… then left it on his seat.
It was then used in the service and was a blessing to someone. (strength in numbers, working together, God’s hand supporting us)… and all my boy did was have a play and follow the little thought on his head…
Met with some friends, got them to bring some old t-shirts. Encouraged the parent to paint/spray the shirt with stencil. ‘I AM LOVED’ backwards. Child puts t-shirt on and looks in mirror, reads I AM LOVED for himself. It’s a message his parent wants him to know…. and maybe God wants him to know….and its a good way to recycle old t-shirts!
I wondered if this could be transferable, transportable to Africa to decorate old tshirts with a message to encourage the wearer… even if it was ‘painted’ with mud and water…. wonder if there’s an African term/phrase that means I AM LOVED….. All you need to take is the plastic template and a sponge….. maybe just a star shape would do (you are a star)… I have this picture of walking down an African street blobbing muddy stars on all the kids tshirts…!
Now I’m seeing small packs of three stencils, a sponge and a blessing to give/arm/sell to churches to enable people to know they are loved… and maybe raise some money for someone?
