Egg-spectations   2 comments

required: prepared egg.

Easter eggs…here’s one I brought along… one that wasn’t used at the early Easter breakfast… maybe not as exciting as a chocolate Easter egg… but what good fun you can have with an egg… I’m going to throw it up in the air and try to catch it in this bowl… (build up expectation that there will be quite a mess…) The egg (of course) has been hard boiled… what we expect is often not what happens… Mary and others expected to anoint a dead Jesus… that’s not what happened… Do we expect to meet Jesus when we come to church?

  1. This was a great idea! I adapted this by: 1. breaking a couple of eggs into a bowl and whisking them, with the stated intention of making an omelette. 2. “Discovered” that I had one more, which was one too many for my omelette. 3. Asked what we might do with it, then after the children’s repsonses suggested egg tennis. 4. brought out 2 tennis rackets, grabbed a volunteer, then built up great anticiptation as we prepared to play tennis over the heads of the kids, 5. finally whacked the egg, sending a shower of egg shell fragments out. The punchline was soemthing like: You expected the egg to be full but it was empty; the women came to the tomb and were even more surpised to find it empty. Look at our Facebook album (public) for some pictures. St Ives Uniting Church.

  2. That’s a great way to illustrate how little we really understand and how little control we have over things that are in God’s hands.
