Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.— Psalm 145:12
Mass readings: 2 Timothy 4:10-17 / Luke 10:1-9
Luke was a highly educated Gentile who was also very familiar with Jewish culture and beliefs. The Acts of the Apostles is a sequel to his Gospel. My students called Acts the “funnest” Bible book to read.
One annual activity was acting out passages from Acts in small groups. One year, a group leader named Rick was determined to get an A for their presentation — and believed in theatrical realism. Their chosen passage was Acts 12:20-23, where a contingent of people try to ingratiate themselves with Herod by referring to him as a god. He goes along with it, whereupon he’s struck dead and his body is eaten by worms. Yep, two dozen live night crawlers in the classroom. Who says the Bible can’t be fun? (Well, of course they got an A.)
Prayer: Thank You, Lord, for the creativity You’ve given children.
