Family Activity

Trust Walk

The story of the blind Bartimaeus parallels that of deaf man seven weeks ago. You played "Stuffed Ears" for that Sunday's activity. Now lead your family members on a trust walk. Blindfold several family members and tie them together with a rope. Lead one around while the others follow. Take turns to allow others to lead and others to follow. (You could even set up an obstacle course!) After the game, discuss the importance of sight. Read the story of Bartimaeus. Imagine how happy he was to have his sight. Imagine how happy he was to see Jesus as he really was, God's Son. Pray that like Bartimaeus, we, too, can see Jesus and follow him.
