As ever at Yellow Braces we were exploring living out The Kingdom, making sense of it as we travelled through the weekend. Specifically also this year we were looking at 'Church' (connected to the launch of the Youth and Child Friendly awards).
Sarah Brush had the BRILLIANT idea of making a Jelly Church with a congregation inside of Jelly Babies. As well as being technically brilliant (you'll have to ask her how she did it) It was a fabulous way of exploring the 'body of Christ' and that we are made of the same 'stuff' as the church.
Sarah looked at the light that fills the church and fills us ... and that we take out with us being light in the world. As part of this fabulous mission conversation there was much fun with the fact that not all Jelly Babies are the same, different characters, different gifts (check out the info on Jelly Baby packets). Then everyone was given a small Jelly baby figure (non edible) that glowed in the dark to take away with them ... a visual reminder of our calling and mission.
Oh, much fuller write up here on Sarahs blog EVEN the technical info on how to make YOUR OWN Jelly Church.
Thanks Sarah :-)
