The donkey Jesus rode on on Palm Sunday can't have ever imagined that this would ever happen to him. At Messy Church we made donkeys out of cardboard and jiffy bags (like hobby horses) The children enjoyed riding them around the church!
The display asks us to think about times when we might have felt silly or thought no one would ever choose us. There is also a reproduction of "The Donkey's Tale" by Margaret Gray - you can read it here.
|How do you feel about your feet? On Maundy Thursday we heard the story of Jesus washing the disciples's feet, despite their protestations that this wasn't his job at all. This display asks us to think about our feet. How do they feel, and how do we feel about them? How would we have reacted if Jesus had wanted to wash them The display has pictures of many different feet, and invites us to consider what prayer we might say for those whose feet they are. It also has this poem by Moses Schulstein about the mountain of shoes at the German Nazi concentration camp of Majdanek in occupied Poland.|
