Elementary Chapel

Mar 14 2017

Once a year I do chapel for our elementary school at Windham Christian Academy.  This year it was a week or so ago that I did this gig, and it's always a lot of fun.  Even though I teach the middle school,I bring them to this chapel, and, in spite of the fact that they juggle and see juggling all the time, they have fun watching their old teacher juggle.

For This years chapel, I opened with my three ring routine done to the Soweto Gospel Choir's "Zuma".  I then did contact juggling to Mahalia Jackson's "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands".  Both routines were flawless, and this has been several shows in a row now that my juggling has been near perfect.  Not bad for an old man.  

I built the message around the Writing on the Wall from the Old Testament book of Daniel. I use the spirit slates illusion to tell the story, and just prior to the show the Lord showed me some fun humor to add to this.  The kids loved it.  More importantly, this story combined with the lyrics to the Mahalia song I juggled to allowed me to teach about Gods sovereignty.  He truly does have it all in His hands.  Not only do I believe some of the kids got something out of it, a few days later one of the elementary teachers told me how much she was encouraged by the message.  That always feels nice.

I also included my magic crown illusion and a balance board routine done to Insingizi's " Mboqane Groove" as well as a mind reading trick.  It was a fun, and I trust meaningful morning.
