Another one.

So in the gospel reading,Jesus is telling the disciples who they are, but he's not just talking to the disciples, then, he'stalking to us today also.

Jesus talks to his disciples and to us5600:02:17,347 –> 00:02:21,514through the gospels becausewe are also Jesus' disciples.

through our baptism.

So you got that there like that.

Now you open it up.

We're gonna roll this like this and I'm gonna need you to get the stapler.

And put me one staple between my fingers.

Good go.


And then put another staple right there.

– Lantern.

– You wanna decorate yourlantern with some green marker? God is asking us to be likesalt to the rest of the world so that we can bring out thegoodness in all the world.

So use your glitter glue.

You can put the glitter glue on there and then smear it with your finger so it doesn't just glob on.

And then if it's on your finger, you can smear it on other parts.

Clare, what do you think Jesus means when he tells us to bethe light of the world? – The light.

– Yep, what does the light do? – The light makes the darkness push back.

– That's right.

Are we able to see better inthe light or the darkness? – The light.

– It's hard to get around in the darkness.

So if you turn on a light, then what? – You can see.

– That's right, you can see.

And God tells us to bethe light of the world to shine forth.

Like a light so we canguide others to Jesus.
