The children and the good shepherd

The children and the good shepherd

This time, the ecumenical children’s bible days of the parish of marienweiher and the evangelical church community of mannsflur had psalm 23 "the lord is my shepherd" as their theme as motto. The good shepherd pastorius (georg schramm) showed on both days what characterizes a good shepherd. The theme was brought closer to the children in a playful way by means of small theater pieces. Father adrian and father silvester accompanied the kibiwo team and guided them through the program.
It also became clear that the good shepherd means god, who cares for people as a shepherd cares for his sheep. Every person is important to him, for each one he cares and stands by him. So the shepherds also met king david in the field, who told them about his time as a shepherd and invited them to a coarse feast in his palace at the end of the day.
After the individual performances, the children divided into four age groups. Handicrafts such as psalm scrolls, sheep and scripture puzzles were just as much a part of the project as a suitable snack. In the fourth part of the bible days, the children prepared the final service, in which they sang the songs they had learned "i am not a sheep, i tell you" and "his love never ends" their parents with great enthusiasm.
