Ephesians 5:8-14

+  Today’s stories make more immediate sense to children.  But if you want to explore Paul’s message, start by exploring the images “children of light” and “children of dark.”  Then read or reread Paul’s message and put it into your own words based on the conversation about children of dark and light.

Name the two images then ask, “What is good about being children of light?”  (You can see where you are going, who you are with, and what you are doing.)  Then ask “what is it like to be children of the dark?” (You can’t see, dark is a place to hide what you are doing, when it is totally dark about all you can do is sleep.)

Write light and dark behavior on separate small posters.  With help from the children (or the whole congregation) sort them into light and dark piles.

Use such words as hate, kind, bickering, greedy, loving, cruel, gentle, sharing, etc.

+  Rather than explore Paul’s images, go straight to his message – which children do need to hear.  Paul is telling us not to do or say anything that we don’t want everyone in the world to know we did or said.  This is one time when straight talk can be most understandable.

** A great way to spread your light is to draw a picture  and send it to your older relatives or older adults in homes in your area or  to the Fire department or Police Station in your area. If you don’t know who to send pictures to, you can drop off pictures in our church mailbox and Mrs. K will find people in our church who are isolated in their homes.  

**Another way to spread light in this difficult time of social distancing is to take a walk and on that walk draw and side walk chalk drawing on your neighbors side walk or driveway spreading love and kindness.  You can also draw a rainbow and put it in a window of your home that faces your street so that when others drive or walk by they see your beautiful drawing.
