I have been telling the children's story at church for several weeks. The format was provided for me, a series of object lessons, based on the concept of vision. The objects so far have been eye glasses, binoculars, and a mirror.

Last Sunday a camera was used to demonstrate how we can see change over a period of time, either short or long. I used my digital camera to take pictures of the kids as we revisited the bible story of Lazarus.
Lydia and Maren pretend to be Mary and Martha, so sad about their brother's serious illness.
Now Emma shows the anger they felt when Jesus did not return in time to prevent his death.
When Jesus finally shows up he calls Lazarus out of the tomb. The children were very surprised when Lazarus, a high school student wrapped in strips of cloth, stumbled through the side door. I took pictures of their surprise and delight. When the last bandage was removed Harrison, going for the cheap laugh, shouted, "Hey that's not Lazarus!" The congregation responded with a burst of laughter.
