Jr. Church Lesson and the Chili Cook-Off

I think that one of my favorite stories to tell, is that of the God of the Israelites and the Philistine god, Dagon, which is found in 1 Samuel 5.  Dagon, an idol made by human hands, an idol made of stone, fell on it's face when placed before our mighty God.

Romans 14:11 - For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

The kids sat so still today and listened closely to the story.  After the story we talked about worship and the different ways we can worship God and then the kids colored a picture relating to the story.  Tristine is three years old and the youngest in my class and always brings a smile to my face.  He turned his color page over and drew a picture on the back.  He came to show me when he was done and it was wonderful picture of a rainbow and face that he had drawn in blue.  I told him what a beautiful picture it was and asked him who he had drawn.  With a big smile on his face he told me it was a picture of God , "cause God is blue and has a moustace."   Like I said, he makes me smile.

Tonight after services we had a Chili cook off.  We had fourteen people bring Chili for the cook-off and it was all so good!

I took a picture as we were setting things up but as soon as everyone
started eating, I got so busy making sure everyone had everything they needed and of course eating some chili myself that I totally forgot to get any more pictures!    There were several pots of Chili that were so hot that everyone was sweating and begging for more juice to drink.  The winning chili was Green Chicken Chili and it was so good that people were scrapping the bottom of the pot hoping to get the last little bit.  Of course the best part of the night was not only the food but all the laughter and fellowship and love we shared with each other.
