Peter Heals Aeneas & Dorcas
Review: Last week we talked about Philip. He left Jerusalem and went to Gaza, in the desert. He saw a man from Ethiopia. He was the treasurer for the queen. The Eunuch was reading the book of Isaiah in his scrolls. Philip asked if he understood what he was reading. The eunuch said “No” and asked Philip to come on his chariot and explain it to him. When they came to water, he wanted to be baptized. The Eunuch said he believed that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and they both went down into…
In memory of 'Uncle' Tom
You need four strips of card and three brass paper fasteners: I was planning on doing this on Sunday anyway, but it seemed particularly appropriate since today was Tom's funeral, who told it (more or less) this way at a holiday club when I was a wee girl.
Jesus Heals a Paralyzed Man
We pray for our owies every service in my class. When I say that its time to pray, each child wants to show me their owie that they want to pray for. It's quite adorable, nearly comical, to watch them search for the littlest scratch that they may have to pray for. They are actually disappointed when they don't have an owie to pray for. In that case, I tell them that they can help their friend pray for their owie. Before we pray I tell them to put their hand on their owie to show Jesus where…

Jesus heals the paralytic
Lesson: Jesus has the power to forgive sins 1. Story: Tell the story of Jesus healing the paralytic from Luke 5:17-26. One day Jesus was teaching in a house in Capernaum. The Pharisees and teachers of the law came from every village of Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem to hear him teach. The house was very crowded. Some men, carrying a paralysed man on a mat, tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. Who knows what “paralysed” means? (Someone who cannot move his body and…
Jesus Heals the Palsied Man Craft: We dressed our man in a cloth tunic and tied it on with a yarn belt. We laced his mat so that it could be lowered. One side was a sad face the other a happy face because he was healed. The kids colored their man and his bed. They had fun lacing his mat and decorating his bed.
Man Lowered Through the Roof

"Be the 4 friends!" Jim Hogan reflects on the gospel story (where 4 friends lower a paralyzed man through the roof because the house is already crowded with people listening to Jesus): "Perhaps you know a family member or friend who is paralyzed, less loving, less human than they are capable of being. Be the four friends. Love that person. Surround him/her with respect. Empower him/her to love, to be who s/he is capable of being." May it be so, given & received, in each of our lives.
