We did several activities, which is a great way to teach people...
This is KC telling us the plan
The finished product. We ended up having to trade colors with other teams and there was a sequence. We were the last team to finish : (.
Application for the Puzzle Game:
1. Things aren't always going to come out the way we plan them
2. Somebody else might have things that you need.
3. If you have questions ask the creator.
We all have in our mind how things are going to be or the way that they might turn out. However, God has a different plan. He knows our weaknesses and our strengths. We need to surround ourselves with people that can fill in the gaps where we are weak. If we ever have any questions we need to go to His Word for the answer.
I have become the group picture taker. I'm getting pretty good at setting the timer and getting into position!!
This is the group that was at the Saturday workshop.
We had a pretty packed house for Sunday morning.
Adrian did an awesome job of comparing the Tabernacle to us today. He had it all laid out about how each place (courtyard, tabernacle, and holy of holies) represents us, our body, soul, and spirit. I don't have my notes in front of me or I would give you more details.
Then we ate:
This is what they decided to do with the front foyer. Instead of blocking off for another classroom they put the secretary's desk up here. It looks quite nice.
The foyer...with chair and tables added for the meal.
It can be a tight squeeze in that hallway with so many people.
In the 2nd part of the afternoon we did another acitivity. This one was called "traffic jam."
1. Only one person can move at a time.
2. You are trying to get into the seat that the farthest opposite you. So, you can see me down there on the far end...I was supposed to make it to the this end where the last guy is sitting, here in the plaid shirt.
3. A person on your team can not be in the seat next to you after you start moving until you have reached your final destination. If they do that is a traffic jam and you have to start over.
4. You have a leader who is supposed to tell you where to move (the thing is, he/she doesn't really know the how it works either)
We played several different ways. The first time we were able to talk freely. The second time only the leader could talk. The third time we couldn't talk or use our hands. We weren't very good at these.
We eventually were able to figure it out and here is Adrian giving us the application. There were many applications for this activity that could have only been applicable for our group. After the first few trys our leader hadn't figured out the pattern, but one of the guys sitting down did. So, we appointed a new leader. There are times when we think we know what is best for the group or what we are doing, but other people who are looking from the outside can see the big picture of what is going on and can help you solve it.
Gary and I will hopefully be going to Singapore in November and will have a chance to visit with Adrian and his wife, Doreen, again.
