Its my turn coming up again to work with the kids at church anyone have a thought on a routine for Gods love is forgiving ? the following verse is the verse for that weekend

Luke 19:1-10New International Version (NIV)

Zacchaeus the Tax Collector
19 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. 3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but because he was short he could not see over the crowd. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.

5 When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” 6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly.

7 All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.”

8 But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.”

9 Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”

I used to do a "forgiveness" themed Comedy Card in Balloon. I used a blue balloon, a red balloon (the one the card would appear in) and a yellow balloon. You can come up with a fitting story line, but obviously the red balloon represents the blood of Christ.

(1) I use a torn and restored heart

Each time you sin pull off a piece and say we do it sometimes sin carelessly and other times worry about what the build up of sin is doing to our life

When asked God for forgiveness, ourcsin is removed and the heart is restored

(2) Laflin has an effect using the magic colouring book effect, for around $15 that has three phases - all of the sins leading to deaths, sins cancelled by Jesus, and finally blank pages for we start again

NB - for young children / outreach I talk about the LOVE of Christ, for older children I use the term BLOOD

I've made a color Book effect -when you first flip through - all kinds of sins are printed(with charcole smeered & Dirty) after running a red silk through it -then flipped the pages- ALL BRIGHT WHITE - if you can make a color changing silk that goes from Red(or black) to WHITE - also can make the compus arrow effect that you can open (so the square is actully doubled and folded in half) after saying all the ways we can sin - open the effect and it says "FORGIVEN" -it can also be made to look like a GIFT with the Bow and Ribbon pointed like the Arrow -when opened -"A GREAT GIFT, FORGIVENES"- any help? Ralph (russo)Rousseau - p.s. go to 'search' and enter russo, many effects (plus a few simipersonal messages)

Agree with Bill...soft soap is ideal. I've recently been looking into purchasing Dary'ls Acrobatic Knot because it seems conducive to a routine involving forgiveness (Jesus taking on our sin burden.) Haven't flushed it out yet but hit me one night as I was viewing a demo vid of the product.

I've had that thought as well.

My new prop purchases take much much longer these days.

Harris, if you're ever interested in collaborating on a routine I'd enjoy the fellowship.

I am not at home to check the name, but I have another. The one with tear apart bag and the little clothes line and wooden clothes pins. Easier to use. Anyone remember the name?

I'd search for my favorite verbal illustrations or stories that communicate God's forgiveness. That's the focus and once you have that, picking a routine to illustrate that presentation should be easy. If you find an analogy you like, post it here and we can all dig into our magic toolbox to find a trick to go with it. You may decide you don't need a trick at all.
"Greetings, my friends. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. You are interested in the unknown, the mysterious, the unexplainable. That is why you are here." - The Amazing Criswell

One of the great secrets of magic and deception is to make the truth seem too ridiculous to believe.

The other trick I was referring to above is " Scrub-A-Dub. Great trick. I have had great reactions with it.

Scrub-A-Dub is a great effect. I like Greg Phillips version. His comes with the tear-apart bag that has a cross on it to end the routine.

Use a head chopper and place a kid in it; tell the kids that all people are sinners and the wages of sin is death; push down on the blade and announce that God forgives our sins and we are saved!!!

This is probably the most disturbing post I have ever seen on this forum. The sad part about it is that I believe you are being serious. JR

You're a new member; you must get used to my sense of humor.

Just because I'm a Christians does not mean I always have to be serious Smile

And the called their son Isaac.

Humor can be wonderful.

Nigel- Forgiveness is divine, sayeth The Lord

At this moment in history when fanatical fundamentalists are cutting off the heads of others in the name of religeon, I do not find anything amusing about your post Howie. JR

Thank you for your opinion.

In my opinion, I believe you are escalating the comment into an unnecessary issue for a reason beyond my comprehension.
