Pitlochry Schools

Today we had the opportunity to go and share in assemblies at the Pitlochry schools. One small group spoke to the high school about Ultimate frisbee and how being a part of a team is like the church. Another group demonstrated knot-tying to 7-11 year olds as an example of how Jesus can free us from the sin in our lives. I helped to lead the group talking to the wee children ages 4-6. We taught a song, then gave each children a penny and talked about Abraham Lincoln as one of America’s heroes and tied that to talking about our ultimate hero Jesus. It was really great to be able to share with these students, especially because most of them are not part of a church. They have religious education in school, but most don’t have any other kind of religious instruction elsewhere. We’re off to go play ultimate frisbee with the youth here now. Good times. Well, someone will be playing ultimate frisbee. I will probably be watching due to my lack of athletic skills.
