OBJECT: Magazine pictures of serene places

A Quiet Place

Today and every day we all have the opportunity to find a quiet place, listen for God’s Spirit and be filled with God’s love.

Today let’s talk about quiet places – places you can go when you want to relax and just be. Many people like to walk along the shore and others enjoy hiking in the mountains. Some say they feel closer to God in those places.

At times it feels peaceful to lie in the sun and look at clouds, sit by the fireside and listen to the crackle of logs burning, or swing gently in a hammock under a canopy of leaves.

Many kids like to tuck into a small, sheltered place in a house or garden. When I was a little girl I liked to climb up into a big maple tree where I found a cozy place to sit and read.

We may also feel peaceful and comfortable as we settle into our beds for the night. Where is your favorite quiet place?

Quiet places are important because there we are given a chance to clear our minds. When that happens we become still and calm. We are better able to hear and feel God’s Spirit.

OBJECT: A Baseball, Bat, or Glove

Jesus’ Transfiguration

Like Kade, who learned to listen to his coach about all thing baseball, Peter James and John learned to listen to Jesus.

Kade and his friends looked forward to baseball practice. They had waited and waited for a coach and now they had and coach and they could begin practicing. The coach had them practice throwing the ball, and showed them how to use their gloves. They practiced swinging the bat. They even practiced running. Soon, hey were ready to play.

Their first game was very different from the practice times. Lots of people sat in the stands behind home plate. When Kade went up to bat, he felt very nervous. With the first pitch, people began calling out, “Kade, swing!” Kade swung at the wild pitch and heard the umpire yell, “Strike!” Behind people kept yelling, but Kade felt frozen. He didn’t swing again, and before long, Kade had three strikes and with his head down he walked back to the dugout.

His friend patted him on the shoulder, and reminded him, “Don’t pay any attention to the crowd. Listen for the coach’s voice.”

OBJECT: Pictures of Human and/or Animal Ears


God is asking us to listen to the words of Jesus… Let’s use our wonderful ears and listen.

Let’s talk about ears.

An elephant’s ears are very large and are used to help keep the elephant cool.

A rabbit’s ears are long. Some rabbit’s ears stand up straight and others flop over.

Owls have short pointed ears.

Dogs have ears that allow them to hear things we can’t hear. Can you describe your dog’s ears?

Bats have interesting ears. Bats make high pitched sounds that they bounce off objects and then catch the sound waves in their ears. They are then able to form a picture in their mind of what is in front of them. You could say that a bat uses its ears to help it see.

A cricket’s ears are located on its front legs, just below its knees.

Can you think of other interesting examples of ears?
