Pictured: A wonderful example of an Art Workshop project that creatively re-tells and reflects on the story, rather than just killing lesson time with a "quickie craft." The photo comes from member Betsy Burgdorff, who was using the Writing Team's Palm Sunday "Art and Storytelling" Workshop lesson.
The Team's lesson plans are open to our Supporting Members. See the Writing Team Lesson Menu. The WT's lesson sets are in addition to all our public lesson forums.
Five creative lesson plans about the Book of Judges, ...and how Christians read its fantastic stories and violence in light of what we know about the peaceful and forgiving heart of Jesus.
If up til now you've been put-off by the violence of Deborah, Gideon and Samson, read the Bible Background and Lesson Summaries for some awesome perspective on "why, how and what" to teach children about Judges in today's world.
