I've been having a hard time adapting the Lotta Bowl for our kids church services because, up to a few weeks ago, I couldn't think of a strong ending.

For our first Christmas-themed service a few weeks ago, I put together a routine that I really liked.

I started by talking about the history of sin and repentance of the Israelites. They would turn away from God, fall captive to a neighboring country, repent, etc.

I said that between the Old and New Testament, there was a period of silence on God's part. I poured out all the contents of the Lotta Bowl into a cup and said that it seemed like God's forgiveness had been exhausted.

Then I went on about the circumstances of Jesus' birth and said that God's forgiveness was still available and, even better, was eternal. At this point I repeated the procedure of pouring out the bowl into the same cup until it was overflowing.

The visual of the same cup filled to capacity and beyond seemed to play really strong and I tried to make it very obvious that the bowl was empty with each pour.

Could you tie this in with the Jesse Tree when you talk about the Old Testament

I am this Sunday in my wife's Sunday School class using two Styrofoam cups, one with slush powder in it. Filling both cups with darkened food colored water (different kinds of sin). Puncture one cup in form of a face- sin (darkened water) flows out of mouth/what one says, in what one views, hears, etc.. But when forgiven, sin no longer flows out (puncture other cup with slush powder), is forgiven! Disappears.

Then combining with filling another goblet with fresh water (The Holy Spirit), turn glass over with card, remove card, Holy Spirit continues to work in our hearts in wonderful ways, etc..
