God’s Tool: Shock  A shock can be described as “a sudden upsetting or surprising event or experience.” Doctors might describe it as a life-threatening condition that occurs when the body is not getting enough blood flow.

God’s Tool: Loss Loosing a set of keys can be a terrible thing.  Frustration.  Anger.  Feeling out of sorts.  Loosing a job is even worse.  No idea what happens next.  No immediate plan for the future.  Loosing a person is worst of all.  The grief can be overwhelming.  I’m confident in saying that everyone in […]

Firsthand Journal: Week 7 Tool: Evangelism  John 13 has a couple of distinct parts. For you!  Jesus gives his followers a firsthand experience of Him.  He washes their feet.  It’s an expression of his deep love for them.  It’s one last intimate touch before he goes through his betrayal, suffering and death.

Tool: Giving  She could have said “NO”. In 1 Kings 17 a woman had the opportunity to say “no”.  No to a intrusion.  No to an impossibility.  No to a request.  No to an unforgettable, firsthand experience of God.  When Elijah asks her for her meal she could have said no.  But then she would […]

Using 10 Commandments to Admit Sin

by davidprill1

The First Commandment: You shall have no other gods. What or whom do I fear most? (If my answer is something other than God, has this thing or person become a god to me?) When a certain desire or expectation is not met, do I feel frustration, resentment, bitterness, or anger?  (Do I crave something […]

Firsthand Journal: Week 4 Tool: Community We believe that one of the main things we were created for is relationships.  In Genesis 2 the first thing “wrong” with God’s perfect creation is that Adam is alone.  He then creates Eve for the first relationship.  Over and over again in scripture we see that faith is […]

Frog Dissection.

by davidprill1

For the record, I have a bucket of dead frogs in my classroom. (Don’t worry, they are preserved in formaldehyde.) I took the option to “find another teacher to do this activity while you babysit her kids in exchange. I know that this is a great activity for the students – real life learning that […]
