Awana Grand Prix

Jun 12 2011

Awana is a church kids' club, and our home church had its Awana Grand Prix races yesterday.  This is like a Cub Scout Pinewood Derby... hand carved cars rolling down as inclined track.  This year was Rose's first year to enter a car, and she got second place for best design.

As has been the case for the last six or seven years, we did a short devotional presentation for the kids and their parents between the races and the awards.  I opened with my three ring routine, which I only do a few times each year.  It is performed to a song by the Soweto Gospel Choir, and I was pleased with how it went.  I closed with a new illusion that tells the story of Zaccheus' conversion, and how he both sought forgiveness, and made restitution to those he stole from.  While the group of children was small in number (13) I trust that God spoke through our various routines.
