The Shoes of the Gospel of Peace

Jesus is with us giving us peace, wherever we are.  This helps us stand firm. 

Memory verses: John 16:33, Ephesians 6:13


Use some bubble mixture:

  • Blow quickly so that you get lots of small bubbles – how fast can you pop them all?
  • Now blow slowly and see how big you can get the bubbles to grow

Bubbles don’t last very long and they’re not very strong, but the peace Jesus gives us is strong enough to last forever.



You will need:

  • Plastic bottle with lid
  • Cocktail sticks
  • Lentils or similar (I’d say rice, but you’re probably wanting to save that to eat!)

Make a rain stick:

Decorate your bottle – you could stick sequins and tissue paper all round it, or you could draw a pattern or picture on some paper and then stick that round the bottle

Fill the bottle about a quarter full with the lentils or grains and fasten the lid

Push the cocktail sticks horizontally through the sides of the bottle, at maybe one or two inch intervals from top to bottom and from all sides

Tip: don’t make the holes too big or your stick won’t stay in place and you’ll start to leak lentils!

Slowly turn the bottle upside down to hear a peaceful soothing sound


Take your rain stick and find a quiet place where you can listen to God.  As you turn you rain stick over, ask Jesus to send his Holy Spirit peace to be with you always
