come and see

John 1:46 “Can anything good come from Nazareth?” Nathanael asked.“Come and see,” answered Philip.

The Lightmaker

1 Comment

Once upon a time (some of you may even remember when) there was a village, not far from here, that lived in darkness. This meant that the people got lost sometimes because they couldn’t find their own way in the dark. Sometimes they fell down and it was quite difficult to get back up. And they couldn’t see all the beautiful things around them like the hills and even their friends. It was dark.

But one day something happened that changed their lives forever. Someone came to town.

He met a person that didn’t even know they had a torch and so The Lightmaker (as he became known) found it for them.

The second person had a torch but couldn’t make it work as it had flat batteries. The Lightmaker helped him too.

The third person had a candle but had been using it as furniture wax and hadn’t even realised it could make light until the Lightmaker showed him how.

The fourth person had a lamp but it was filled with the wrong kind of spirit – the Lightmaker soon fixed that.

Now something else began to happen. The other people could see the light through the darkness. They came to find out what had happened. They were told all about The Lightmaker and soon light began to spread throughout the land.

We did this short skit  – an original piece written by Vanessa – a few weeks ago.
The craft to go with it was these tealight holders – simply take an old glass jar or tumbler, draw and colour in your own design on a piece of parchment paper, then tape the paper to the outside of the jar. (We used battery operated tealights as a safer option)
