We’re in a pretty good pattern. Goof off, get active in the morning – open the word in the evening.
Today, I taught the crew the game Inversion. This is where you have 5 people in a line facing one direction, another 5 people along that same line but facing towards the first group with an open space in between them. So you have a straight line with 11 spaces, 10 of them occupied.
The goal is to get each group of 5 on the other end of the line. But there are a couple of rules. You can not share a space. You can not pass anyone who is facing the same direction as you. You cannot back up. You can only â€˜jump overâ€™ one person at a time – like checkers – and there must be an open space available.
Normally this will take a youth group a good 45 minutes to an hour to figure it out. They knocked it out in about 30 minutes. Pretty good. The next game didnâ€™t go as well.
4 on the Couch. If youâ€™ve played it, you can pretty much guess how ridiculous this game went. If you have no idea what Iâ€™m talking about…be glad.
Morning Study: John 4 – royal officials son was healed. Key thoughts the group uncovered – Jesus didnâ€™t have to be â€œpresentâ€ to heal. Heâ€™s not bound by geography or the whole space-time continuum. The only real news Jesus had made to this point was clearing the Temple and MAYBE they knew about the wine story – but probably not.
God will do great things – things that only He can but it will be married to great acts of faith by people. Itâ€™s not so much that God is limited by our faith but he chooses to work within the limits of our faith.
Ultimate Frisbee after study. Iâ€™m not in my 20â€™s anymore. I love this game. I love running around but after about 30 minutes…I was done. Itâ€™s too dang hot and humid and Iâ€™m lugging around too much weight.
