Acting Out

Which of Jesus’ sayings do you find hard?

Saint Paul compares human marriage to the marriage of Christ to his Church. Each of these "marriages" is based on mutual love and sacrifice. To illustrate Paul's message, act out the following "What if . . .?" scenarios.

1) What if husbands had to make all the decisions in a marriage?

2) What if wives had to make all the decisions in a marriage?

3) What if marriage partners were not willing to make any sacrifices out of love for each other?

4) What if marriage partners both try to love each other and their children as Jesus loves his Church?

Responding to Jesus

When his disciples could not accept Jesus' teaching about the Eucharist, he asked the Twelve, "Do you want to leave me too?"

Write an e-mail message responding to Jesus' question. Speak to him as you would to a friend who had been rejected by others.

Our God Has Done Great Things for Us

In the first reading, Joshua has the people of Israel make a choice between whom they will serve. The people choose to serve God, listing the many good things that he has done for them.

God has done good things for us, too. Discuss with the children some of the good things God has done for them. Then provide paper, crayons and markers. Encourage the children to illustrate or write about some of the things that God has done for them. Gather these pages together and place them in a binder to create a class book. On the cover of the binder, write "Our God Has Done Great Things for Us."

Building Church

Build a class church with ways to serve the Lord. Brainstorm with the children ways to serve the Lord. Write these on construction paper bricks. Each day, select one brick, read what is on it and do that activity. Place that brick on the outline of the church. Watch as the church is built with ways to serve the Lord.
