This thread is for posting Cooking Workshop Lessons and Ideas for Call of the Disciples.
Some key "Call of the Disciples" stories:
Matthew 4:19, Mark 1:16-20, Luke 5:1-11
“Come, follow me,” he said, “and I’ll show you how to fish for people.” (fishers of men)
Matthew 9:9-13, Mark 2:13-17, and Luke 5:27-28
"Follow me!" The Call of Matthew the Tax Collector
Then Jesus told his disciples, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.
Peter said in reply, “Look, we have left everything and followed you. What then will we have?” Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man is seated on the throne of his glory, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

I could use some help thinking about a "FOOD" related learning activity for the Jesus Calls the Disciples Cooking/Food Workshop lesson I'm working on.
I see in the resource forum an idea for "fish pizza" ...but I don't want to focus on "the fish" symbol because it doesn't convey the central idea I'd like to emphasize, namely: "what does Jesus use to catch/call us?" and "what is he calling/catching you for?"
I'm thinking very visually:
How could you create an Edible Net? Or perhaps the image is a "hook" ?
Ideas are swimming in my brain on this one.
I keep thinking of "net shaped" funnel cake with all its "strands." Wondering how to flavor (label) various strands that represent different ideas about all the strands in a net that Jesus throws around us to bring us to him (worship, prayer, scripture, spirit, sunsets, parents, mentors, Sunday School, etc)
Further thinking out loud:
Jesus' "Call" is not one thing, but many strands in a net tossed our way.
The lesson will ask how we are netted How we try to escape the net/call.
Jesus first calls (nets) us, and says he is calling us to call (net) others. (I can see a "blog tag" game to help illustrate this idea, but that's another thread!)
All help appreciated!
“Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him.
